DefinitionThis section has been translated automatically.
The diagnosis " Pruritus sine materia" is rejected by most experts today. Originally, it denoted a pruritus without an identifiable basic dermatological disease. The current clinical classification bypasses this inaccurate classification and describes this condition as "pruritus on primarily unchanged skin". This designation is based on the clinical picture and is therefore easy for the clinician to classify and provides a clear guideline for a further causal research.
The diagnosis "pruritus on primarily unchanged skin" is compared to the clinical picture of "pruritus on primarily changed skin" (in dermatological diseases).
