Allergy. 2016 Jun;71(6):780-802. doi: 10.1111/all.12884. Epub 2016 Apr 6.


These recommendations for the definition, diagnosis and management of chronic inducible urticaria (CIndU) extend, revise and update our previous consensus report on physical urticarias and cholinergic urticaria (Allergy, 2009). The aim of these recommendations is to improve the diagnosis and management of patients with CIndU. Our recommendations acknowledge the latest changes in our understanding of CIndU, and the available therapeutic options, as well as the development of novel diagnostic tools.

Keywords: cholinergic urticaria; chronic inducible urticaria; physical urticaria.
