Background/Objectives: Chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) is a common skin disorder which represents a challenge both for the patients and physicians. Guidelines and treatment algorithms have been created to help physicians to ease management. Our aim was to determine Turkish dermatologists' approach to CSU with regard to treatment, search for causative factors and use of instruments to assess the quality of life and severity of the disease.
