Dermatitis venenata: An account of the action of external irritants upon the skin.

Boston, MA: Cupples & Hurd, 1887.

White, a pupil of Hebra, was an outstanding personality in American dermatology; he held the first chair in that subject in the U.S.A. The eponym “White’s disease” refers to his description of keratosis follicularis in J. cutan. gen.-urin. Dis., 1889, 7, 201-09, a condition described earlier by Lutz and later by Darier.
