Immediate hypersensitivity in hand dermatitis. Role of food-contact dermatitis

Abstract: A patient had a chronic hand eczema, presumably as a manifestation of atopy. Treatment resistance appeared due to handling certain foods that produced burning and stinging in the chronically eczematous skin and not in otherwise normal skin. Selected tests for delayed hypersensitivity and for immediate hyper sensitivity on intact skin of the back produced negative results, but on chronically inflamed skin of the arm and back, application of the pertinent foods produced a wheal and flare response. On intact skin… Show more

“…Gmtact urticaria can occur as either an allergic or non-allergic response in both atopic and non-atopic patients (Fisher, 1973;Hjorth & Roed-Petersen, 1976). The importance of its ability to cause a flare-up in pre-existing dermatitis is being increasingly recognized (Hjorth & Roed-Petersen, 1976;Maibach, 1976). It is uncertain whether the combination of positive prick tests and patch tests represents a double hypersensitivity as may occur with ragweed.…”

“…Recently, dermatologists have also come to realize that a variety of chemicals can be urticariogenic upon contact with normal skin. Credit must go to Maibach and his colleagues for emphasizing the importance of contact urticaria and for popularizing the term which now has world-wide currency (1)(2)(3)(4)(5).…”

“…The phenomenon of contact urticaria leading to a chronic dermatitis has been reported as a cause of hand dermatitis in food workers. 6–9 The foods most frequently implicated are seafood and raw meat. The underlying ICD in these food workers probably results in the picture of a flare of hand dermatitis rather than typical urticaria.…”
