BACKGROUND: Contact allergy to corticosteroids has recently gained increased attention. METHODS: Five cases of contact dermatitis due to budesonide, a nonhalogenated steroid, are described. The Japanese literature was reviewed for reports on this allergy, and the occurrence due to budesonide was compared with that of other dermocorticosteroids. RESULTS: Budesonide use can cause contact dermatitis. CONCLUSIONS: Although budesonide may be beneficial because of its anti-inflammatory effects, clinicians should be alert to its potential for causing contact dermatitis.
