An overview is given of the computer applications we have developed over the last twelve years in the field of contact dermatitis. The dissemination of exposure lists to sensitised individuals and the development of a knowledge-based system are mentioned only briefly. Priority here is given to the explanation of the graphical representation of the patient data collected since 1978 on 12,000 patients referred to three contact dermatitis units. More than a hundred parameters of each patient have been collected in a database. Several graphs are given of these data and are discussed in detail.
