||The purpose of this study was to highlight the effect of Kathon, a mixture of two isothiazolines, in the development of contact dermatitis in certain occupations. Medical files of 2333 patients having consulted the INHST dermatology services between 2004 and 2006 were examined. A total of 110 cases of Kathon sensitization were identified, of which 32 clearly had occupational causes while 13 were doubtful. Some patients also showed positive reactions to several sensitizing agents other than Kathon. Occupations within which the highest numbers of cases of contact dermatitis were found were hairdressing, perfume manufacture, mechanical goods manufacture, the cosmetics industry and cleaning.
