||Cutaneous allergy to mustard in a salad maker
||Apr. 1987, Vol.16, No.4, p.212-214. Illus. 7 ref.
||A case of allergic contact dermatitis to mustard (Brassica nigra) in a salad maker is reported. The sources of skin contact included a commercial salad cream, a vinaigrette, and various members of the mustard family, Cruciferae. The Cruciferae include many salad vegetables and condiments which contain allergenic isothiocyanates. The extent of skin contact among salad makers and other food handlers may be significant, and sensitisation to isothiocyanates from this large family of vegetables may be an important cause of food contact allergy in these individuals.
