Cyclosporine (CsA) is an effective and safe therapeutic option in various dermatoses in both adults and children. Over the last 25 years, Italian dermatologists have gained relevant experience about the use of CsA in the treatment of psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, and an Italian Consensus Conference has recently provided recommendations in adult patients. A comparison between these real-world indications and current European guidelines is hereby provided.
