Abstract
According to a review of the literature, most surveys of occupational dermatitis indicate that about 25 percent of the cases are of allergic nature, while the remaining are due to skin irritants. While contact with irritants can be avoided by using protective garments and cleaning substances, many workers cannot enter a room containing a substance to which they are allergic. Details are given regarding the diagnosis of allergic dermatitis, with emphasis on in-vitro and in-vivo tests.
