Abstract

Eczema is a specific clinical, morphologic and microscopic reaction pattern of the skin. It has many causes, including external and internal chemicals and the action of various microorganisms--bacteria, fungi, yeasts, viruses and mites--and their products. Peripheral vesicles with undermined borders are a feature of all eczemas caused by fungi, yeasts and bacteria and are thus a useful diagnostic finding.
