Özet

Objective: The diagnosis of chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is mainly based on a thorough patient history and physical examination. Although limited laboratory tests are recommended, detailed screening laboratory tests are frequently required by specialists to exclude underlying diseases or to identify causative factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate laboratory findings of patients with CSU and its impact on the diagnosis and management of the disease.
