Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) Calculator (1.7.1)

 
The Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) is an index used to express the severity of psoriasis.
It combines the severity (erythema, induration and desquamation) and percentage of affected area [4].
 
This free online application helps physicians and patients in the computation of the PASI.
If you find this application useful you can help with the costs of hosting with a small contribution.
