Chronic practice and performance with a musical instrument predisposes musicians to several unique and characteristic dermatoses, reflecting the hours of dedication to practice to advance their artistic skill. This article briefly discusses a case of a professional musician with a unique allergic contact dermatitis to nickel sulfate and possibly palladium and cobalt chloride in his tuba. We also review several dermatologic causes and manifestations of musical instrument-related dermatitides.
