||An occupational contact dermatitis disease severity index (ODDI) was designed to assess the severity and functional disability caused by occupational contact dermatitis (OCD) of the hands in patients attending an occupational dermatology clinic in Australia. The objective of this study was to assess the intra-observer reliability, inter-observer reliability, internal consistency, acceptability and convenience of this instrument, based on the clinical assessment of 95 patients with OCD. The ODDI was found to be a valid and reliable instrument to assess the severity and functional limitations caused by OCD.
