Abstract

The quality of life (QOL) of 224 patients with atopic dermatitis (AD) in 2643 Japanese new outpatients who visited the Department of Dermatology, Kyushu University Hospital from January 2007 to December 2008 was assessed by using Japanese version of Skindex-16 and DLQI. We found that patients with AD had a significantly more impaired QOL irrespective of gender and age compared with those with other skin diseases.
