Abstract

Background: Psoriasis (PsO), Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and Atopic dermatitis (AD) patients havean increased risk of sleep disorders. Although sleep disturbances are well-known among patients,caregivers’ oneiric evaluation remains poorly assessed. The objective was to quantify the sleep burdenof parents with affected children.Methods: In this multicenter cross-sectional study, we enrolled sex-age matched parents with childrenaffected by PsO, PsA, and AD. Both parents underwent the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index to determinetheir sleep quality.Results: We enrolled a total of 90 children (age 12.36±1.83 years, 45 male and 45 female) withpsoriasis (n=30, PASI 7.00±2.49), atopic dermatitis (n=30, SCORAD 33.13±10.03), and psoriaticarthritis (n=30, DAPSA 26.40±10.94). Patients’ Parents (age 49.83±6.69 years, 45 male and 45 female)had a PSQI of 6.17±1.91; hence 70.0%, 73.3%, and 96.7% had a bad quality of sleep, respectively,with children suffering from atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis. Parents with childrenaffected by psoriasis (6.23±2.46) or by psoriatic arthritis (6.73±1.42) had lower PSQI than the ones with atopic dermatitis (5.53±1.55). Interestingly, children with PsA had parents with higher risk of sleepdisturbances (OR 52.25 [95%CI 1.92-1,422.66], p=0.0189), and male gender was protective (OR 0.14[95%CI 0.02-0.86], p=0.0337).Conclusions: The sleep quality of parents is deeply influenced by the dermatological/rheumatologicaldisease in children but not by its duration.
