Six years ago, we reviewed what was then known about chronic urticaria (CU) in children.1 We came to the conclusion that many important and interesting questions were unanswered. These included, but were not limited to, how common chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) and inducible urticaria are in children, the clinical presentation, underlying causes, impact on everyday life of CU in children, and the natural course of pediatric CU. We also suggested strategies to address and answer these questions and encouraged further studies to do so.
