Abstract This article describes the case of a 29 year old man who had been working for 4.5 years in a photographic film development workshop and was occasionally involved in machine repair. He developed a prurient eruption on the fingers, arms and forearms, five days after having been in contact with a developer. Injuries were of the lichenoid type, and skin tests showed a positive reaction to CD-2 (N,N-diethyl-2-methyl-1,4-phenylene-diamine hydrochloride). The particular aspect of this case was that there was a dissemination of the lesions in locations where there had been no contact with the developer. After ceasing all contact with the developer, the lesions disappeared progressively.
