The monograph on eczema of the hands by R. D. G. Ph. Simons is a succinct, liberally-illustrated discussion of dyshidrosis. The author details histopathologic investigations of hyperhidrosis and dyshidrotic conditions, the seasonal rhythm of dyshidrosiform eruptions, the role of fungus infections, and a brief concluding section on management. Simons writes from the vantage point of vast experience with eczematoid disorders of the hands.
