About this book

Occupational skin diseases are a field of increasing interest in today’s dermatology. Due to rapid developments in several areas of modern industry, new dermatological problems constantly occur amongst workers.

The 1st edition of this Handbook of Occupational Dermatology was published in 2000 and has served as the main reference book of occupational skin diseases for general and occupational dermatologists and occupational physicians. The new edition is completely revised, updated and extended with respect to new developments. The layout allows for both quick access to practical information and in-depth reading. Included are concise tables, algorithms and figures on how to optimize the diagnostic procedure for daily patient management and expert opinion.

The new edition will continue the success as major source of reference for clinical and experimental work in the field of occupational skin diseases, both for students and experts.
