||In a study of occupational dermatitis at five shoe factories in Italy, 246 workers were examined and patch tested using standard and occupational patch test series. The prevalence of occupational dermatitis was 14.6% (36 workers). 20 workers had irritant contact dermatitis, attributed to contact with solvents contained in adhesives and varnishes. 16 workers had allergic contact dermatitis, caused mainly by contact with adhesives, and with rubber and skins. Other skin complaints included hyperkeratosis of the fingertips, and pruritus sine materia. Some jobs were more frequently associated with skin complaints.
