  • A 52‐year‐old geriatric nurse presented with recurrent eczema localized in uncovered skin areas. Patch testing produced an eczematous skin reaction with type IV sensitization to tetrazepam. A relapse of contact dermatitis was successfully prevented by using occupational skin protection measures and organizational measures. Our case indicates that a sensitization to drugs should be considered when allergic contact dermatitis is suspected in nursing personnel.
