||The purpose of this literature survey was to review the present knowledge on the factors which determine individual susceptibility to occupational contact dermatitis (OCD). Recent discoveries regarding genes involved in the skin barrier, inflammatory response and biotransformation of xenobiotics provide more insight in the individual susceptibility for OCD. Knowledge of the factors which predispose to OCD will be useful in occupational health practice for the application of preventive measures and for career guidance for apprentices and workers in high risk occupations.
