2015 VAM: 3523 - Where Asthma and Contact Dermatitis Collide: Case Presentations with New and Common Allergens
The Environmental and Occupational Respiratory Diseases Interest Section Forum examines clinical situations in which respiratory and dermatologic conditions overlap. Although asthma and contact dermatitis are assumed to involve different mechanisms of disease, there are a number of environmental and occupational settings where both respiratory and skin disease can be triggered by the same exposure. This recording utilizes a series of case presentations as examples, with information on the causes.
