Comparison and interpretation of the dermatological health-related quality of life and SKINDEX-29 in patients with different subtypes of rosacea
Aim: comparison and interpretation of dermatological health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and SKINDEX-29 in patients with different subtypes of rosacea. Materials and methods. Questionnaires HRQoL and SKINDEX-29 (which is very slightly described and categorized in Russian literature) were used to question 48 patients with rosacea of 3 subtypes (the 1st, the 2nd and the 3rd). The data resulting from the study were processed statistically and tabulated. Results. Sensitivity and interchangeability SKINDEKS-29 and HRQoL were confirmed for patients with different subtypes of rosacea. A more detailed description and interpretation of SKINDEX-29 will increase the understanding of the scores obtained in patients with any dermatological pathology. The use of two questionnaires, investigating the quality of life, increases the control of psychosocial examination and the most narrowly figures details. Conclusions. Conversion of abstract SKINDEX-29 points and its clear categorization into clinically significant quantities will help to form, manage and to unite, if necessary, groups of patients, depending on the parameters of emotional, physical symptoms and psychological functioning for partnerships in the "doctor— patient" system.
