Título Allergic contact dermatitis - Evaluation of patch tests in animal fodder plant workers
Título original Dermatiti allergiche da contatto - Valutazione della positività ai test epicutanei nei lavoratori di un mangimificio [en italiano]
Información bibliográfica July-Aug. 1990, Vol.81, No.4, p.296-300. 9 ref.
Resumen Patch tests were performed on 43 workers employed in an animal fodder plant, a typical dust-laden environment. The aim of the study was to establish and assess the incidence of preclinical sensitisation to the substances used, some of which are well known allergens, and identify which of these were mostly responsible. On the whole, the tests did not reveal any major reaction to the allergens used, nor polysensitisation. However, an unexpected number of cases was sensitised to phenothiazine, a substance that had not been used for the preceding two years. This observation is of interest since phenothiazine is scarcely allergenic and skin eruptions occur only after photosensitisation.
