Title Occupational allergic contact dermatitis and airborne contact dermatitis from 5 fungicides in a vineyard worker - Cross-reactions between fungicides of the dithiocarbamate group?
Bibliographic information May 1996, Vol.34, No.5, p.324-329. 36 ref.
Abstract In February 1995, a case of a vineyard worker with occupational contact dermatitis due to sensitization to mancozeb and perhaps metiram was reported. Patch testing showed strong allergic reactions to two of the commercially available preparations used. Further patch tests showed allergic reactions to mancozeb (0.5 and 1% pet.), a weak reaction to metiram (1% pet.), as well as to four other fungicides of the dithiocarbamate group (maneb, nabam, propineb and zineb), which had never been used in the vineyard.
