About this book

Irritant dermatitis is a common condition, accounting for a significant proportion of occupational skin disease. The recent advent of non-invasive skin bioengineering technology has accelerated dermatology research in this field. This book comprises an exhaustive reference text on irritant contact dermatitis, covering all aspects of the condition: clinical features, epidemiology, prevention and therapy, prognosis, mechanisms, pathology and regulatory issues. The book also presents novel in vitro and in vivo research techniques and findings. As irritant dermatitis affects multiple specialties, the audience for this book is wide, including clinical and investigative dermatologists, allergists, toxicologists, pharmaceutical scientists, occupational and environmental physicians, public health physicians, cosmetologists and skin bioengineers.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"The authors of Irritant Dermatitis have written an exhaustive review of the subject. Early chapters cover common presentations of irritant dermatitis, and later chapters describe occupation-related dermatoses...This textbook is essential for the occupational medicine physician and the dermatologist... It will also serve as a resource for scientists and regulators in industry, who are constantly striving to understand skin irritation." NEJM

(Journal of Investigational Allergology, Vol. 16 (5), 2006)

"Irritant contact dermatitis – once viewed as the poor relation of allergic contact dermatitis – has now become a field of its own. … the book is of great value for all clinicians and researchers interested in the field of irritant contact dermatitis. … It is astonishing how many different aspects of irritant contact dermatitis, including diaper dermatitis, friction melanosis, chemical skin burns, contact urticaria syndrome, airborne irritant contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis of the nails, are included in the book." (Ehrhardt Proksch, Archives of Dermatological Research, March 2006)
