Two cases of persistent galactorrhea and amenorrhea associated with atopic dermatitis are presented. This rare phenomenon has been attributed to endocrine dysfunction, drug ingestion, trauma, and inflammatory reactions of the chest wall. To date we are unaware of a case associated with atopic dermatitis. Endocrine abnormalities were not detected. In both patients galactorrhea terminated and normal menses returned when the atopic dermatitis became asymptomatic.
