Although these disorders have mainly been reported with reactive dyes and cochineal carmine, many other dyestuff molecules may also be responsible. Contents of this review article on respiratory allergies to dyestuffs: physiopathology and prevalence; diagnosis, based on the example of reactive dyes (in occupational settings and in specialised institutions); evolution and prevention of dyestuff asthma; compensation.
