||Contact urticaria with anaphylactic reactions caused by occupational exposure to iridium salt
||Jan. 1995, Vol.32, No.1, p.14-17. 13 ref.
||Case study of a worker who developed respiratory tract symptoms and contact urticaria following occupational exposure to iridium chloride. An iridium chloride prick test showed a positive reaction and a scratch test produced anaphylactoid reactions. Unusually, a negative reaction was obtained with platinum salts. The results are interpreted as immediate-type hypersensitivity to iridium salt; the route of sensitization was probably through the airways. Further testing showed that iridium salt allergy could persist for at least 18 months after exposure ceases.
