||2-N-octyl-4-isothiazolin-3-one (OIT) is an antimicrobial agent that is mainly used in industrial settings. The objective of the study was to find the significance of OIT contact allergy. Clinical records of patients at an occupational dermatology clinic were analysed from 1991 for possible allergic reactions to OIT. Eight patients were found with ordinary allergic reactions to OIT and one with a late reaction. OIT is a rare sensitizer, and its contact allergies occur mainly in paint manufacturing. Other findings are discussed.
