Title Ectopic contact dermatitis from ethyl cyanoacrylate instant adhesives
Bibliographic information Apr. 1993, Vol.28, No.4, p.206-208. 8 ref.
Abstract Although allergic reactions to cyanoacrylates adhesives are extremely rare, they should not be considered impossible. The authors report on the case of a young hairdresser who developed an occupational allergic contact dermatitis to 2 "instant glues" used to attach false hair. The eczematous eruption involved the fingers and face slightly but mainly the eyelids. Patch test reactions were strongly positive to ethyl cyanoacrylate adhesives.
