Objective: Urticaria is a condition characterized by the development of blisters (hives), angioedema, or both. Acute urticaria is the appearance of rashes lasting 6 weeks or less, angioedema, or both. It is recommended to use the urticaria control test to evaluate disease control in patients with CSU. This study aimed to evaluate the factors affecting urticaria control in patients followed up with the diagnosis of chronic spontaneous urticaria.

Material and Methods: Urticaria control  results of children diagnosed with chronic urticaria were evaluated retrospectively and factors that could affect urticaria control were investigated.

Results: Relationships between the urticaria control test and age, gender, onset time of the complaint, family history of atopy, and laboratory values such as anti-nuclear antibody (ANA) and c4 were examined.

Conclusion: Although chronic urticaria has a mild course in children, parameters such as gender, age, and ANA positivity may affect the control of the disease.
