Abstract

Background and objective: As the life expectancy increases, diseases in the elderly also increase. Senile atopic dermatitis is atopic dermatitis (AD) which persists until elderly or the onset first occurs in elderly. The prevalence of senile AD remains unclear and in Indonesia, there have not been any study regarding senile AD yet. Therefore, it is needed to conduct a study regarding this topic in geriatric outpatient clinic Dermatovenereology Department, Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital in 2011-2015.

Method: This is a descriptive study, using secondary data obtained from Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital medical record.

Most patients were in 60-69 years old group (63%) and most of the patients were already retired (57.4%). Seventeen of fifty-four patients had history of atopy or allergy. The most common comorbidity in subjects was hypertension. The most common type of onset was senile onset, which found in 45 patients (83.3%) and the most common type of skin lesion was sub-acute lesion (N=30, 55.6%).
