A 9-month-old infant, with no family history of atopy, presenting with erythematous, itchy plaques, and sleep disturbance, was diagnosed with atopic eczema (AE). Previous treatment with topical hydrocortisone and emollients had little effect. The infant was treated nightly with methylprednisolone aceponate (MPA) 0.1% (Advantan(®) ) cream, in addition to emollients and an oral antihistamine. After 1 week of once-daily MPA 0.1% treatment, followed by 1 week of alternate-day treatment with Advantan, significant improvements in AE symptoms and sleep were observed. The patient's caregiver reported overall treatment satisfaction and no side effects of Advantan. For this infant with newly diagnosed AE, Advantan improved symptoms and sleep quality in a safe and well-tolerated manner.
