Abstract

Aim. The instruments to measure the severity of atopic dermatitis (AD) are time consuming, so their use is limited in routine clinical practice. The self administered eczema area severity index (SA-EASI) was developed and validated for a caregiver's self assessment of the severity of child's AD.

Thirty-five patients with AD admitted at the Pediatric Unit of a Dermatological Hospital in Rome, Italy, and their parents, participated in the study. The severity of the disease has been assessed at admission, by parents using the SA-EASI, and by dermatologists using the SCORAD, independently. Results. Evidence of convergent validity was provided by high correlation between SA-EASI and SCORAD (Rank Spearman rs=0.71; P
