Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence and risk factors of mental disorders in patients with chronic urticaria (CU) in a cohort of adult outpatients. Mental disorders occurred in almost one-sixth of the patients with CU, depression (9.7%), and anxiety (5.0%) being the most prevalent conditions. Furthermore, a significant difference in impairment of quality of life was seen between patients with mental disorders compared to patients without. Although, the prevalence of mental disorders in patients with CU is high, larger clinical studies are needed to investigate and understand the association and risk factors of mental disorders in patients with CU.
