Title A test series for pesticide dermatitis
Bibliographic information Nov. 1986, Vol.15, No.5, p.266-269. 10 ref.
Abstract A pesticide patch test series was tested in 200 subjects, 50 of whom were agricultural workers. Positive reactions to fungicides were found in 24, almost all to thiophthalimides, especially captan, difolatan and folpet. Reactions to bis-dithiocarbamates and benomyl were rare, and to other pesticides not significant.
