BACKGROUND In our routinely patch tested patients with dermatitis gold was shown to be the second most common sensitizer. In most patients it was difficult to explain the source of sensitization to gold and to see any clinical relevance. OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to elucidate the clinical relevance of contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate. METHODS A questionnaire on gold exposure and gold sensitivity was answered by 156 consecutive patients with dermatitis. In another group of 1056… Expand
Exposure to metallic gold in patients with contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate
TLDR
It is hard to exclude that exposure to gold jewelry can be clinically relevant in persons hypersensitive to gold, as 60 female patients with pierced earlobes test‐positive to GSTS were included in the study. Expand
Contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate
TLDR
Simultaneous allergies to nickel and cobalt were statistically significant in patients with positive patch tests to gold sodium thiosulfate and potassium dicyanoaurate and, finally, to try to clarify the clinical relevance. Expand
Contact allergy to gold as a model for clinical‐experimental research
The high frequency of contact allergy to gold in patients with dermatitis was established after exhaustive skin testing, determining the right test agent, the best concentration, and repeated testExpand
Contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate
TLDR
100 consecutive patients routinely attending the contact dermatitis clinic were patched tested to gold sodium thiosulfate (GST), and 1/2 of the patients with a positive response to GST had symptoms that they felt could he attributed to gold allergy. Expand
Contact allergy to gold is correlated to dental gold.
TLDR
It is concluded that there is a positive relationship between contact allergy to gold and presence and amount of dental gold alloys. Expand
Screening for Gold Sensitization in Consecutive Eczema Patients: Prevalence, Relevance, and Sources of Exposure
TLDR
Because it may be difficult to diagnose gold allergy, screening may be recommended when history taken suggests gold exposure, and relevance has been between 15% and 20% of patients. Expand
Gold – a controversial sensitizer
TLDR
With the present knowledge of contact allergy – allergic contact dermatitis, it is decided not to recommend including gold sodium thiosulfate in the standard series and it should be applied for scientific purposes and when allergicContact dermatitis from gold is suspected. Expand
Dental gold alloys and contact allergy
TLDR
There is clearly a need for prospective studies in the field and gold sodium thiosulfate is considered an important item in the dental series for patch testing. Expand
A preliminary study of gold sensitization in Singapore
TLDR
A high sensitization rate of 6.4% to gold is found, but only 3 out of 22 patients with positive reactions had clinically relevant reactions, all of which could be traced to gold jewellery. Expand
Clinical reactions to systemic provocation with gold sodium thiomalate in patients with contact allergy to gold
TLDR
The most spectacular clinical reaction in the 10 patients given the active agent, was an epidermal and dermal flare up of healed patch‐test reactions to the gold salts, as well as a high, but transient, rise in body temperature. Expand

Selection of patch test materials for gold allergy
TLDR
A review of the literature, especially regarding the optimal reagents for patch testing, found gold chloride is most commonly used but may cause persistent dermatitis at the test site, while gold sodium thiosulfate is commercially available in petrolatum and is a reliable. Expand
