This invaluable textbook on contact and occupational skin diseases is written for dermatologists, occupational physicians and practitioners interested in dermatology who are working in the Asia-Pacific region. It consists of contributions from experts in contact and occupational dermatology from many parts of the region. While most other textbooks on this subject cater to Western practitioners, this book is unique in that it focuses on topics relevant to the Asia-Pacific region and the tropics, complementing the Western publications. There are differences in the epidemiology and clinical presentations of contact and occupational dermatitis in the Asia-Pacific countries and the tropics compared to the Western countries. This book addresses the epidemiology and the approaches to the topic in many Asia-Pacific countries. It is a simple practical guide to the principles and practice of managing patients with contact and occupational skin diseases.

The editors have included many colour illustrations, to assist dermatologists and other practitioners in using the book more effectively. These illustrations have been painstakingly selected to bring out clinical features as succinctly as possible.
