Reviews

“This book succinctly reviews the basic principles of patch testing and common allergens responsible for allergic contact dermatitis and makes broad recommendations for categories of contact avoidance and general treatment suggestions. … The audience is dermatologists who have a special interest in occupational dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis and who perform patch testing as part of the diagnostic evaluation. … useful as a general overview of the what, when, why, and how of patch testing and contact dermatitis.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2016)
