The article gives a definition of an atopic march which refers to the typical progression of atopic diseases: when a patient has atopic dermatitis, as they get older they also develop allergic rhinitis and bronchial asthma. The existing hypotheses of development of an atopic march as well as the latest research the results of which contradict the long held perceptions about this phenomenon are analyzed. The analysis presented in the article makes one consider a possibility of forecast of development of such conditions and the necessity of further research seeking to understand the process of progress of atopic diseases, to determine their markers and the possibility of prognosis of their manifestations and, correspondingly, the possiblity of their prevention.
