In a cross-sectional study severity scores of atopic dermatitis (AD) were measured in children of Indian parents but born and brought up in UK and USA and in children of Indian parents born and brought up in India. In each group there were 33 children matched in age, sex, personal and family history of atopy. The mean severity scores in two groups were 8.64 and 6.34 respectively. Statistical analysis revealed significant difference (p<0.005) in severity scores of the two groups suggesting a more severe form of AD seen in the former.
