||A 35-year-old woman who had been a manicurist for 14 years, presented at the dermatology department of a Danish hospital with hand eczema and severe pulpitis and nail dystrophy. Patch tests were carried out with standard series and specific products, including selected allergens from a series of adhesives and acrylate chemicals. A positive reaction was found to hydroxyethyl methacrylate, a component of artificial nails.
