Purpose of the study: to assess the psycho-emotional state and the level of filaggrin in the blood serum of pregnant women with exacerbation of atopic dermatitis (AtD).
Materials and methods. The study included 70 pregnant women with AtD, 20 non-pregnant women with AtD, 20 healthy pregnant women. A survey was conducted on the Beck Depression and Anxiety Scale. The filaggrin level in the blood serum was assessed by ELISA.

The level of anxiety was increased in the groups with AtD compared with the group of healthy pregnant women (p=0.001). The level of depression in pregnant women with AtD was higher than in healthy pregnant women (p=0.002) and non-pregnant women with AtD (p=0.021).
