Allergic contact dermatitis due to Philodendron scandens KOCH et SELLO subsp. oxycardium (SCHOTT) BUNTING (“Philodendron scandens cordatum”) is seldom reported. In four patients with dermatitis, allergy to philodendron species was found through parch testing with leaves, stems and ether extracts from eight philodendron species. Although this allergy appears to be rare, it ought to be considered in patients with dermatitis on hands, arms and face. 
Concomitant immediate and delayed sensitization by philodendron (Philodendron scandens) in a plant keeper
TLDR
The patient had a history of childhood atopic dermatitis, but no diagnosis of hay fever or asthma, and had never experienced work-related symptoms, when she started plant keeping and noticed increased nasal congestion and a watery nasal discharge. Expand
Allergic contact dermatitis from Schefflera
TLDR
Considering the large quantity of this preparation sold over 5 years, the incidence of sensitisation must be regarded as very low and the potential for induction and maintenance of sorbic acid sensitivity from such sources obviously exists. Expand
Occupational allergic contact dermatitis and contact urticaria caused by indoor plants in plant keepers
TLDR
The skin persistence of PPD could hypothetically have contributed to the occurrence of the LLAPTRs, both to PPD and to the azo dyes showing PPD as their metabolic derivative. Expand
Fluconazole‐induced fixed drug eruption confirmed by extemporaneous patch testing
TLDR
The triazole antifungal drug fluconazole is frequently used for treating vulvovaginal candidiasis and is available in the UK without prescription and the diagnosis was confirmed by extemporaneous patch testing with powdered capsule contents. Expand
Occupational Contact Dermatitis to Plants
TLDR
Plants are either a less common source of occupational contact dermatitis or a less commonly reported source, according to the data presented by Halkier-Sorenson, and some occupations have a higher risk. Expand
