Although some dermatologists specialise in contact dermatitis, and there are additional screening tools for diagnosing less common cases (e.g. dental series for dermatitis amongst dental nurses, dentists and dental patients), 90% of contact allergies are diagnosed by the standard series test and 90% of dermatologists applying and using the standard series are office based dermatologists with no specialisation. The prevalence of contact allergy is high amongst the general population. It is estimated that median prevalence of contact allergy to at least one allergen in studies on the general population was 21.2% and the weighted average prevalence was 19.5%. Books which are currently available are principally targeted at the specialist in contact dermatitis and not at the general dermatologist who performs the majority of screening for contact allergy. These books are very research based and not a desk companion for instant reference to assist the office dermatologist performing patch testing. This book will help the non-specialist dermatologist with the sequence of tasks involved in patch testing, test interpretation, and subsequent diagnosis. The first part of the book is a practical guide for the dermatologist on how to practice patch testing. This will cover basic immunological knowledge, different ways contact allergy can present, history taking and examination, patch test technique, and how to diagnose allergic contact dermatitis. The second part of the book will provide a reference for each standard allergen. Then when faced with a positive patch test, the dermatologist can refer to these templated chapters (which include key points, molecular formula and chemical structure, immunology, epidemiology, clinical presentation, exposure, Patch testing specifics, co-sensitization/cross-reactivity, and case reports). There is also then a comprehensive summary of the literature for each standard allergen for deeper enquiry by the dermatologist.
