Reviews

From the reviews:

“The purpose is to provide an up-to-date source of information on the diagnosis and treatment of hand dermatitis and for patient education. The audience is dermatologists and those with a special interest in occupational skin diseases and patch testing. … This book achieves the correct balance between offering useful clinical information and discussing the science and pathophysiology of hand eczema.” (Patricia Wong, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2014)
