The Leuven Itch Scale (LIS). The LIS is an instrument to measure itch in patients experiencing pruritus of different origin. The novelty of the LIS, in contrast with several previously developed instruments, is that it approaches itch as a symptom, and that it consequently measures all aspects of that symptom: frequency, duration, severity, circumstances, treatment, consequences, sensory characteristics, distress and location(s).
