||12 Apr. 1997, Vol.349, No.9058, p.1093-1095. Illus. 18 ref.
||Signs of irritant and allergic contact dermatitis are described, and procedures are outlined for establishing the diagnosis and the relation of the disorder to occupational exposure. The importance of establishing a detailed work history is highlighted in addition to observation of morphological abnormalities. Diagnostic patch tests may be used to establish the work-relatedness of the disorder, to classify the process as irritant or allergenic in origin, and to develop strategies for management.
