Measurement of Atopic Dermatitis Disability

Abstract

Fifty-five patients completed a questionaire to assess disability caused by atopic dermatitis. The eleven most relevant questions were identified and an Atopic Dermatitis Disability Index (ADDI) calculated. The index correlated with the clinical severity score (rs=0.273, 0.01 <0.05). The index may be used as a simple repeatable record of disability caused by atopic dermatitis and may potentially aid management decisions.
