Mario Sánchez-Borges*, Sandra Nora González-Díaz, Jose Antonio Ortega Martell, Isabel Rojo and Ignacio J. Ansotegui Zubeldia

Chronic urticaria is highly prevalent in the population and a major motive for consultation in general practice as well as in allergology and dermatology services. It represents a heavy burden on patient’s quality of life and results in significant costs. This review article presents a comprehensive analysis of available literature on the definition, classification, pathogenesis, diagnosis and management of patients suffering chronic urticaria and angioedema and provides clues for clinicians taking care of them. Recommendations to utilize the management strategies contained in the guidelines and the instruments to assess severity, control and quality of life are strongly encouraged.
