||Urticaria is a clinical manifestation of many diseases and has an unknown epidemologic profile, due to its uncommon characteristics. Only the most critical and recurrent cases are treated in health services. This article reviews the bibliography of urticaria and its clinical aspects, classifications, the various forms of occupational urticaria and its diagnostic tests. The main occupational risk factors giving rise to urticaria are reviewed with particular emphasis on manifestations caused by contact with rubber gloves.
