||Literature survey on occupational skin diseases in farm workers due to contact with pesticides. A general overview of the field conditions of exposure is presented, including U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommendations. The bulk of the paper summarises the latest scientific data concerning specific chemicals under the following broad categories: pesticides derived from plants; inorganic and organo-metal pesticides; solvents; fumigants; chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticides; organophosphates; carbamates; rodenticides; herbicides; fungicides; slimicides; antibiotics; miticides; plant-growth inhibitors; insect repellents. The special dangers of working with livestock is addressed, including zoonotic infections. Patch testing, the accepted diagnostic tool for contact dermatitis, is explained.
