Part of the Fortschritte der praktischen Dermatologie und Venerologie book series (DERMATOLOGIE, volume 20)


Tiere spielen in der Pathogenese zahlreicher Hautkrankheiten eine bedeutende Rolle. Für den Hautarzt sind klinische Angaben zu vorausgegangenem Tierkontakt von großer klinischer und differenzialdiagnostischer Bedeutung. Tiere können als Vektoren gefährlicher pathogener Krankheitserreger wie Viren, Bakterien, Protozoen, Pilze und Würmer fungieren, Ektoparasiten auf die Haut übertragen, selbst auf beziehungsweise in der Haut parasitieren, aber auch durch Tierallergene und Toxine lokale kutane Intoleranzreaktionen, systemische toxische sowie anaphylaktische Reaktionen mit tödlichem Ausgang herbeiführen [9, 43, 111, 114]
