||Occupational allergic contact dermatitis caused by thiourea compounds
||Oct. 1994, Vol.31, No.4, p.242-248. 48 ref.
||Case reports are presented of five patients with allergic patch test reactions caused by thiourea compounds. Sources of thiourea included diphenylthiourea in neoprene gloves and pesticides, and diethylthiourea in a knee brace. Since allergic contact dermatitis by thiourea compounds can be verified only by patch testing, patients with contact dermatitis who have been exposed to thiourea compounds (such as rubber, PVC plastic or adhesive, diazo paper, paints or glue remover, anticorrosive agents, fungicides or pesticides) should be patch tested with a series of thiourea compounds.
