Abstract

The results of an American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)-sponsored survey on the use and effectiveness of patch testing are presented. Academy members' responses indicate that 27% do not patch test at all. Reasons given for not testing included (1) the patient history was adequate for diagnosis, (2) patch testing was too time-consuming, and (3) reimbursement was not sufficient. Dermatologists in residency training programs who responded to a similar survey are testing frequently and report a high degree of positivity and relevancy among tests applied. Recommendations are presented with a focus toward increasing interest in patch testing among the membership.
