État des lieux de la prise en charge de l’urticaire aiguë par les médecins généralistes du département des Pyrénées-Atlantiques (64)

Abstract : Introduction: urticaria is a common dermatological condition, with approximately 20% of the population presenting with an acute episode. This is a fairly common reason for consultation in general practice, however, little current data exists in primary care settings. The objective of the ASUN study is to describe the global management of patients with acute urticaria, by general practitioners of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques. Method: this is a descriptive, quantitative, prospective, departmental study over a period of six months. The data studied come from paper survey. They bring together the intrinsic characteristics of recruiting physicians and patients included in the study. Data on diagnostic, therapeutic and investigative management were analyzed. Results: the sample of 25 general practitioners included 66 patients. The recruiters have an average age of 44 years and practice for the majority in liberal, in semi-rural zone, since about ten years. Over the studied period, in the department, the average age of patients is 34, and women are the majority at 76%. This is 85% of them of their first episode, and 70% have no sign of gravity. The most prescribed drug treatment is 90% antihistamines followed by 38% oral corticosteroids. Conclusion: the ASUN study provided an initial assessment of medical practices as well as a profile of patients with acute urticaria.
