Upper eyelid gold weight implants are an established tool in the symptomatic treatment of lagophthalmos, the inability to close your eyes completely. Complications associated to this procedure are infrequent. When noted, non-infectious inflammatory reactions corresponding to type IV hypersensitivity reactions are resolved with the removal of the implant. Here, we report a case of a late B-cell cutaneous pseudolymphoma in a patient, four years after the removal of the weight that showed strongly positive patch tests to gold sodium thiosulfate...

BACKGROUND: Analyses of the European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies (ESSCA) database have focused primarily on prevalence of contact allergies to the European baseline series; overall and in subgroups of patients. However, affected body sites have hitherto not been addressed. OBJECTIVE: To determine prevalence of contact allergies for distinct body sites in patients with allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). METHODS: Analysis of data collected by ESSCA (www...

BACKGROUND: Professional musicians have prolonged and intense physical contact with their instruments. This can lead to occupational skin diseases, particularly irritant and allergic contact dermatitis. OBJECTIVES: To assess the skin diseases and sensitization patterns common among professional musicians. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of the data of the Information Network of Departments of Dermatology was performed, including data from 1997 to 2017...

BACKGROUND: Multiple contact allergies (MCA) are evidenced by 3 or more positive patch test reactions to unrelated antigens. Factors associated with MCA include female gender, older age, and certain eczema sites. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the prevalence of MCA, risk factors for their development, and patterns of allergen combinations. METHODS: This retrospective, case-control study was conducted on patients suspected of having allergic contact dermatitis who had been patch tested with a baseline series during January 2007 through December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Leather exposure has been associated with chromium (Cr) and cobalt (Co) contact dermatitis. Cr(VI) in leather is now restricted to <3 mg/kg in the EU. Cr(III) is not restricted. OBJECTIVES: To analyse 29 differently coloured Cr-tanned leather samples from two Nicaraguan tanneries, and to compare their release of Cr, Cr(VI) and Co with that of leathers produced in Europe. METHODS: Cr, Cr(VI) and Co were extracted in phosphate buffer for 3 hours at 25°C according to EN ISO 17075...

Topical drugs containing chloramphenicol and clostridiopeptidase A are frequently used for the treatment of cutaneous ulcers and other necrotic lesions. Chloramphenicol is a bacteriostatic broad-spectrum antibiotic widely used in eye and skin ointments to treat bacterial infections and a well-known cause of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) (1). Clostridiopeptidase A, also called collagenase 1, is a proteolytic enzyme facilitating the tissue granulation with consequent re-epithelization; it has rarely been reported as cause of ACD (2)...

Drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome (DIHS) or drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a rare, severe skin disease with manifestations such as fever, eosinophilia, lymphadenopathy and internal organ damage that typically develops 2 to 6 weeks after drug intake. DRESS/DIHS follows a prolonged course involving frequent flare-ups and relapses over weeks or months after treatment discontinuation.

BACKGROUND: Alkyl glucosides are a family of mild surfactants that are increasingly used in a wide range of cosmetics and household products. Contact allergy to alkyl glucosides may be more frequent than previously suspected, especially in atopic patients. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the frequency of contact allergy to alkyl glucosides and to identify concomitant reactivity. PATIENTS/METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of suspected allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) in which patients were either patch tested with a cosmetic series that includes five alkyl glucosides (decyl glucoside, lauryl glucoside, coco glucoside, cetearyl glucoside, caprylyl/capryl glucoside) or a specific alkyl glucoside series from November 2013 to April 2017 in two UK centres...

Chromium is a well-known allergen in leather products, however, cobalt has not historically been associated with leather exposure. Cobalt allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) from leather in furniture upholstery has been reported in Denmark,1,2 and leather furniture samples obtained in the United States also were found to contain cobalt.3 However, no clear cases of cobalt ACD from leather gloves or shoes have been reported. In this study we examined cobalt content in a convenience sample of shoes and gloves.

Adhesives are widely used in medical material and my cause allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). It is important to know the full composition of medical material to avoid iatrogenic ACD in sensitised patients. Over time, colophonium and rubber components have been replaced by other adhesives to avoid ACD.1 .
