is caused by the disease? And how is the quality of life affected? Pain can be assessed on a visual analog scale (VAS), and the quality of life may be assessed using a validated questionnaire such as the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) or Skindex. In a study of quality of life in 60 pa-3 tients a good correlation was observed between the Sartorius score and the Skindex score for quality of life, offering support for the validity of the proposed scores .
An "evolutivity score" integrating "objective" and subjective" evaluation of the disease to be used for the management of medical treatments, however, has yet to be constructed.
