Abstract

In our sample of AD children, QoL appeared slightly-moderately altered, and increasing disease severity was associated with greater impairment in QoL. SCORAD and PO-SCORAD were fairly correlated and the association of QoL was somewhat stronger with the PO-SCORAD than the SCORAD Index. This supports the usefulness of PO-SCORAD for the self-assessment of AD in children, and suggests the importance to integrate physician and patient perspectives in the management of AD.
