Abstract

With regard to observed metabolic and immunological relations atopic eczema might be considered as a primary congenital immunodeficiency disorder due to an epithelial maturational deficiency caused by decreased levels of 6-desaturated long-chain essential fatty acids. Early postnatal substitution of the deficient tong-chain essential fatty acids during the phase of postnatal T-cell maturation might have a preventiveeffect on the development of the atopic immune system and the manifestation of atopic dermatitis. This view is supported by the observed beneficial effect of oral substitution of gammalinolenic acid in children with atopic eczema. Presumably, present-day full-adapted infant formula lacks essential components for newborns at risk for atopy.
