Purposemeasurement of severity of atopic dermatitis

The Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) is a tool for the measurement of severity of atopic dermatitis. It ranges from 0 (no eczema) to 72.[1][2]

EASI is one of the core outcome instruments recommended to be included in all clinical trials on atopic dermatitis.[citation needed]
