Abstract
The dermatologist who is aware of the epidemiology of occupational contact dermatitis (OCD) can find this information helpful in making a diagnosis, determining etiology, and recommending preventive efforts. This article reviews some of the available epidemiologic data sources and their limitations. These data sources provide important information on the prevalence and incidence, the public health importance, the risk factors, the common etiologic agents, the prognosis, and the preventive measures for OCD.
