Patch tests are safe and highly specific when performed according to the recommendations, but sensitivity is highest in exanthemas, DRESS, and fixed drug eruptions and particularly for abacavir, carbamazepine, aminopenicillins and other antibiotics, diltiazem, and tetrazepam.
Tetrazepam Allergy: A Case Series of Cutaneous Adverse Events.
Due to the withdrawal of tetrazepam, and only one case of documented cross-reactivity to diazepam, physicians could take other benzodiazepine-derivates into therapeutic consideration.
Occupational airborne contact dermatitis from benzodiazepines and other drugs
Healthcare workers (or relatives) crushing drug tablets for patients with difficulties in swallowing are at risk of developing sensitization via airborne exposure through airborne exposure to Tetrazepam.
On the clinical evidence leading to tetrazepam withdrawal
It is failed to find a turning point in the amount of ADRs reported following tetrazepam withdrawal to underpin the validity of the withdrawal, and the importance of a better communication of knowledge in scientific literature, pharmacovigilance agencies, and from doctors is stressed to prevent marketed usage of drugs with well-established side effects during long periods.
Airborne contact dermatitis to tetrazepam in geriatric nurses – a report of 10 cases
Background  Tetrazepam, a benzodiazepine, is a frequently used muscle relaxant. The most common adverse reactions are neurological and gastrointestinal. Cutaneous reactions to tetrazepam are rare and
Patch testing in adverse drug reactions
Cutaneous adverse drug reactions (CADRs), defined as skin eruptions induced by drugs used in adequate doses and in the correct indications, present under different clinical patterns, and the


Guidelines for performing skin tests withdrugs in the investigation of cutaneous adverse drug reactions
A working party of the European Society of Contact Dermatitis for the study of skin testing in investigating cutaneous adverse drug reactions, has proposed the herein‐reported guidelines for performing skin tests in CADR in order to standardize these procedures.

Occupational airborne contact allergy to tetrazepam
Tetrazepam drug sensitivity − usefulness of the patch test
Although the optimal patch test concentration of tetrazepam has still to be determined, it is a useful diagnostic tool to confirm sensitization, particularly in patients with severe bullous eruptions.

Tetrazepam allergy
The results of this and previous studies indicate that acute recidivous type I allergic symptoms following ingestion of Anisakiscontaining seafood usually represent reaction to Anisakis-speci®c allergen, and that the patients are not sensitized to allergens of the seafood per se.
Photodermatitis from tetrazepam
Treatment for sciatica was discontinued and the eruption cleared with skin desquamation in 10 days, and oral photochallenge test with tetrazepam was performed, with reappearance of the skin eruption.
