Validation of an Optical Pencil Method to Estimate the Affected Body Surface Area in Psoriasis

ConclusionsThis study to validate the OP method for estimating the affected BSA in patients with psoriasis shows good agreement between the OP and traditional approaches. The OP calculations also showed less variance and better interobserver reliability.ResumenIntroducciónLa determinación de la superficie corporal afectada, “Body Surface Area” (BSA), es una de las escalas de medida más empleadas en la evaluación de la gravedad de la psoriasis, pero no está exenta de inconvenientes.ObjetivoValidación de un nuevo sistema de medida del BSA.Material y métodoEstudio multicéntrico, prospectivo, que incluyó 56 pacientes con psoriasis. Cada paciente fue evaluado en dos visitas por dos dermatólogos del mismo Centro que valoraron BSA mediante dos procedimientos: método visual “tradicional” (MT), palma mano = 1%, y; el método “lápiz óptico” (LO), lápiz capacitivo puntero sobre pantalla táctil con medición de la superficie mediante software específico.ResultadosSe observó una concordancia aceptable entre ambos métodos, coeficiente de correlación intraclase (CCI): 0,87, pero con unos límites de acuerdo excesivamente grandes y un sesgo sistemático consistente en mayores medidas de BSA con MT que con LO. La concordancia entre métodos fue superior en el tronco y extremidades inferi...

Conclusions: These data suggest biomarker analysis can reflect disease activity across disease domains in PsA. Certain domains would likely benefit from evaluation of additional biomarkers. PMID: 32067517 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
