The ICDRG was formed in 1966 to promote the understanding of contact dermatitis. It has had major roles in the standardization of patch testing and the facilitation of regular scientific meetings, for over forty years and thirty five years respectively. It has also been involved in the authorship of a number of publications on contact dermatitis. Both Drs. Maibach and Lachapelle are members and the ICDRG is now comprised of representatives from all over the world, and currently includes members from Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, the United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Singapore, Korea, India, Japan, Canada, Uruguay and Australia.

(Renata H. Mullen, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2009)

“The book is written for any medical practitioners interested in contact dermatitis, but dermatologists and allergists will find it most useful. The book meets the needs of this intended audience. … I highly recommend this up dated edition as there have been many breakthroughs since the last edition was published in 2012.
