Background:

Psoriasis is one of the top 10 skin diseases seen in our centre. It is a disease that has significant physical and psychosocial impact. It is important to have a  clinical measure of the patients improvement in  their psoriasis while attending the clinic. PASI  (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) is  a validated  tool for assessing  psoriasis severity . A 50% improvement in PASI scores (PASI 50) translates to a meaningful improvement in quality of life of the patients.
