He presented to the dermatology clinic where multiple biopsies over time were nondiagnostic, revealing nonspecific pathologic diagnoses such as spongiotic dermatitis and psoriasiform dermatitis.
Dermatologists rarely biopsy an eczematous lesion to differentiate between clinical variants of spongiotic dermatitis, so it is sufficient for the pathologist to recognize epidermal spongiosis and to classify the inflammatory reaction pattern as "spongiotic." Subtle clues, such as superficial dyskeratotic keratinocytes in contact dermatitis can be used, but in most circumstances, the diagnosis spongiotic dermatitis" is sufficient information for the clinician to manage the patient.
On the other hand, eczema is often a descriptive diagnosis, often referring to a broad range of conditions that begin as spongiotic dermatitis and may progress to a lichenified stage.[sup][17] Moreover, AD is a chronic or chronically-relapsing disease while the eczema could be acute, subacute, or chronic.
