Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

"The very fact that now the 4th edition of Contact dermatitis has been edited gives unambiguous evidence of its highly acknowledged usefulness … . this book is worth each of the 214€ that it costs in Germany. In my personal opinion it is the most up-to-date and comprehensive textbook on contact dermatitis currently available. Therefore, I am convinced that it will rapidly become indispensable for all physicians with more than a superficial interest in contact dermatitis, in clinical practice as well as in research." (Jochen Brasch, Archives of Dermatological Research, Vol. 298, 2006)

"The 4th edition of Contact Dermatitis is a comprehensive textbook covering every conceivable aspect of irritant and allergic contact dermatitis. … The 92 contributors to this book are all well-known experts in their specialist field of contact dermatitis. … Furthermore, a CD-ROM is provided, containing all the clinical photographs and important diagrams, for the reader to use for teaching purposes. With this textbook any reader should be able to understand the modern-day management of contact dermatitis." (Marléne Isaksson, Acta Dermato-Venereologica, Vol. 87, 2007)
