||This study consisted of a retrospective analysis of patch test data from the dermatology department of a German teaching hospital between 1992 and 2003. 141 metalworkers had been tested because of suspected occupational contact dermatitis due to metalworking fluids (MWFs). 829 patch tests with 306 samples of MWF had been performed on these workers. Positive reactions to water-based MWFs occurred in 27 patients. From the analysis of reaction patterns, it is concluded that most of these reactions indicated true contact allergy.
