Allergic contact dermatitis to plants: an analysis of 68 patients tested at the skin and cancer foundation


, : Allergic contact dermatitis to plants: an analysis of 68 patients tested at the skin and cancer foundation. Australasian Journal of Dermatology 38(3): 129-131

Allergic contact dermatitis to plant allergens is a common problem in Australia. We present the cumulative experience of the Contact Dermatitis Clinic of the Skin and Cancer Foundation (Darlinghurst, NSW, Australia) a tertiary referral clinic. Results from a series of 68 patients with positive patch tests to 88 plant allergens are reported. We found that Grevillea species, Compositae, Rhus, Alstroemeria and various timber sawdusts were the most common plant allergens.
