Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Out of 545 consecutive contact dermatitis clinic patients, 73 (13%) had dermatitis of the neck of whom 18 (25%) were nickel positive. 7 had clothing dermatitis and 3 of them reacted to chromate in military uniforms. 5 patients were sensitised to perfume and 4 to medicaments used to treat existing dermatitis. 3 patients were sensitised to hair dyes. Nickel dermatitis, was clinically overdiagnosed, mainly due (for various reasons) to inability to make a firm diagnosis of atopy.
