We are proud to present the first book on Contact Dermatitis, which was written to  reflect the current state of the science, practice, and art of dermatology. In this book,  we have invited a number of skilled individuals to share their expertise with our  readers. Contact Dermatitis is an excellent tool to be utilized for anyone who requires  help in diagnosing patients with a conundrum or treating patients with a  therapeutically challenging dermatitis.
During the last decade, our insight into the knowledge of pathogenesis has increased. Diagnostic modalities have been modified and newly developed. Our aim is to  encourage the understanding of scientific aspects of dermatology, and to provide an  updated reference guide to contact dermatitis. A distinct feature of this book is that it  describes numerous possible allergens causing contact dermatitis, and extensive  details of research in the basic sciences and advanced diagnostic techniques are  provided. Thus, this book will help our readers understand more about contact  dermatitis. It is our hope that this book will assist physicians in treating contact  dermatitis in the best way possible. Most importantly, we hope that this text will  benefit patients in the future.
We thank all authors. We would also like to thank the production team of InTech for  their efforts throughout the preparation of this book.
