THE prevalence of miliary dermatitis - variably called feline allergic miliary dermatitis, miliary eczema, ecisinophilic dermatitis and papulocrusting dermatitis - is unknown, although many authors suggest that the condition is common. Lesions may be due to a number of underlying causes, particularly flea bite hypersensitivity, but also food hypersensitivity, ectoparasites and microbial infections including dermatophytes and bacteria. This article provides a clinical update on feline miliary dermatitis, highlighting the therapeutic options available to the practitioner.
