Grevillea‘Robyn Gordon’is an Australian hybrid plant which may cause allergic contact dermatitis. Over the past 8 years, in bag been planted extensively in Australia and is now being exported to the United Slates mid other Western countries. Recently, fin explosion in incidence of contact dermatitis due to this plant has been seen. 24 patients who were suspected of being sensitive to it were patch tested to fresh plant and extracts with confirmation of sensitivity.

TLDR
Contact dermatitis from plants or plant products may occur by several mechanisms and reactions of mixed aetiology, for instance irritant reactions superimposed on allergic reactions, are often seen, while mechanical plus chemical irritant effects are evoked by, for example, stinging nettles. Expand
