Background: The urticaria control test (UCT) is a questionnaire designed to determine if chronic urticaria (CU) is controlled or not and to aid therapeutic decision-making. It collects retrospective information about the symptoms and quality of life impairment over the last 4 weeks. The current study aimed to investigate the validity, reliability and sensitivity to change of the Turkish version of the UCT. We also evaluated its correlation with other tools and compared the UCT results of patients with chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) and patients with chronic inducible urticaria (CINDU).
