Atopic dermatitis is a difficult disease to treat. A few reports suggest that azathioprine may be effective in the treatment of atopic dermatitis. We therefore, evaluated the role of azathioprine in adult atopic dermatitis not adequately controlled with conventional therapy. Four patients of adult atopic dermatitis were treated with azathioprine 50 mg twice daily orally for 3-4 months. All the patients had complete remission after therapy. There were no significant side effects. Therefore, aeathioprinc can be considered a better and safer alternative drug in recalcitrant adult atopic dermatitis.
