||Occupational allergic contact dermatitis from glyoxal, glutaraldehyde and neomycin sulfate in a dental nurse
||Feb. 2000, Vol.42, No.2, p.116-117. 10 ref.
||Case report of a non-atopic dental nurse with work-related hand dermatitis. Two patch test sessions gave positive reactions to glyoxal, glutaraldehyde and neomycin sulfate. The latter had been frequently used to treat her dermatitis. The sensitizations to glyoxal and glutaraldehyde were considered occupational. As the nurse had been exposed to both products, it is not clear if she developed cross-reactivity or concomitant sensitization.
