Chronic prurigo is characterized by persistent itching und partly accompanied by secondary skin excoriation. Diagnostic evaluation is of special relevance and atopic diathesis is a frequent pathogenic factor. We present a patient with prurigo of multifactorial etiology (atopic diathesis, impaired kidney function, diabetes and polyneuropathy). After several unsuccessful prior treatment approaches, the patient was treated with dupilumab, which resulted in a tremendous improvement of itching, skin lesions, and quality of life.
