||A case report of acute dermatitis that developed during an experiment examining the bromination of 3-hexylthiophene

||This article presents a case of acute allergic dermatitis that was likely to have been induced by 3-hexylthiophene, an aromatic compound often contained in fragrance substances. The case, who was a 27-year male researcher engaged in organic chemical synthesis for six years, was exposed to 3-hexylthiophene and its product (2-bromo-3-hexylthiophene) through an experiment in May 2004 and itching, swelling and eczema immediately developed from face to back. This case of sensitization to 3-hexylthiophene suggests that it be a possible allergen for fragrance allergy.
