Title Lupus induced by aromatic amines in a hairdresser
Original title Lupus induit par les amines aromatiques chez une coiffeuse [in French]
Bibliographic information Dec. 1998, Vol.59, No.8, p.548-551. 13 ref.
Abstract Aromatic amine-induced toxic lupus is uncommon. A case in a hairdresser is reported. Laboratory findings showed a pattern of toxic lupus. Aromatic amines were found in hair dyes and permanent lotions. The patient was not taking any drugs. A cause-effect relationship was established between the aromatic amines and lupus. Based on the Pharmacovigilance Centre's methodology for unexpected or toxic drug reactions, intrinsic toxicity is likely.
