    A 77-year-old man presented with tense blisters on both legs and petechiae on his toe. He had a 14 year history of rheumatoid arthritis resistant to systemic steroids and bucillamine.

We treated 46 such refractory atopic dermatitis patients, who visited our outpatient clinic from 2012 to 2014, with only way strong or strangest topical steroids, and examined the period of time till remission.

In order to induce remission atopic dermatitis patients, we concludethat treatment utilizing topical steroid of adequate strength appears to be the most important.
