About this book

The Dictionary of Contact Allergens is a helpful guide for familiarizing the reader with the structures of chemicals implicated in contact dermatitis. Each molecule is described together with its principal name for classification. The most important synonyms, the Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry number, which characterizes the substance and its chemical structure, and the relevant literature references are also listed. Further, the reader will find a unique chapter on patch testing with the patient’s own products. This guide is a "must-have" for any physician involved with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with contact dermatitis and allergic skin disease.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is a concise pocket sized guide to the structures of chemicals implicated in contact dermatitis. … The intended audience is physicians involved with the management of patients with contact dermatitis and allergic skin disease. This includes primary care doctors and specialists such as immunologists and dermatologists. In a broader sense, it may be of use to clinicians involved in guidelines and caring for patients in an occupational health and safety setting as well as a public health setting." (Veronica A Preda, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2008)
