Abstract: In this study serum immunoglobulins and complement levels and severity scores were examined in atopic dermatitis (AD) patients with positive and negative Antinuclear antibody (ANA). There was no statistically significant difference between ANA positive and negative AD patients in terms of immunoglubins and complements. In addition, the severity scores of the two groups of patients were also compared and there was no significant difference, either.
