||Patch testing was carried out on 240 dermatitis patients in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 136 (57%) showed one or more positive results; positive reactions were found for 21 of the 22 items in the test series. Sensitization was most common to nickel sulfate, potassium dichromate, and cobalt chloride; less than 1% of patients reacted to benzocaine and none to primin. The European standard series is suitable for patch testing dermatitis patients in this region, with the exception of benzocaine and primin. The addition of three allergens that could be of local relevance is discussed.
