The box of dermatology has a great deal replaced over the past a long time. An ever-increasing wisdom concerning the pathogenesis of ailments of the surface has made it attainable not to simply larger classify but in addition to make dermatoses larger explainable and comprehensible. the current publication exemplifies this with a truly universal affliction, the dyshidrotic eczema of the palms. most present textbooks nonetheless describe "dyshidrosis" as a illness of the eccrine sweat glands, as was once first postulated in 1873 by means of T. Fox. In 1962, R. D. G. P. Simons challenged this idea and because then, it has no longer been attainable to set up a uniform pathogenetic suggestion concerning "dyshidrosis". the single often authorized view is that the dermatosis has a number of etiologies. This monograph is meant to be a follow-up to Simons' e-book released in 1966, entitled Eczema of the fingers. Investigations into Dyshidrosiform Eruptions. It repre­ sents an try to view the medical and experimental features of atopic palmoplantar eczema as a foundation for an realizing of the complete entity of dyshidrosis. My unique thank you visit Prof. Dr. E. Macher, Miinster, who made it attainable for me to accomplish this paintings, to Prof. Dr. S. Nolting, Miinster, who aroused my curiosity within the topic, and to Prof. Dr. P. Frosch, Heidelberg, who generously supplied the mandatory technical gear for investiga­ tional use. scientific examinations are most unlikely with no sufferers and keep an eye on in keeping with­ sons. i want to thank all of the those who took half during this project.

They observed that among atopic patients, heating of one arm caused a cooling of the other unaffected arm. In healthy patients, the other extremity warms up instead with the heat-treated extremity. The authors concluded that atopic dermatitis has a higher tendency to vasoconstriction because of a deficit of j1-adrenergic receptors. This is based on the theory of Szentivanyi concerning the atopy syndrome, which is further discussed in chapter 5. In summary, one can say that dyshidrosis is accompanied by elevated temperatures of the affected hands.

As the tissue is almost impenetrable for this type of radiation, heat transfer through thermal radiation within the body can be neglected. 4. Transpiration in the form of sensible or insensible sweating is a function of the sweat glands.
