patch testing should be done only if there are strong clinical indications, because some patients might have severe blistering reactions. There are reports of formaldehyde and MCI/MI (3), cinnamic aldehyde and cinnamic alcohol (4) provoking bullous pemphigoid, and 1–3 dichlorpropene (5) and nickel (6) provoking contact pemphigus. In these cases, the bullous skin signs were reproduced by patch test and the diagnosis verified histologically. There are reports of pesticides, chromium sulfate and…

Pseudomonas oryzihabitans cutaneous ulceration from Octopus vulgaris bite: a case report and review of the literature.
This case represents the first report of an Octopus vulgaris bite resulting in an ulcerative lesion with slow wound healing owing to P oryzihabitans infection and is recommend greater vigilance regarding bacterial contamination when treating skin lesions caused by marine animals.
Delayed reaction after an octopus bite showing a giant cell‐rich granulomatous dermatitis/panniculitis
Octopus bites should be included among the marine animal injuries, which cause a delayed‐type reaction with granulomatous dermatitis/panniculitis, and this case is considered to be a delayed reaction after an octopus bite showing an unusual giant cell‐rich granulOMatous skin disease.
Dermatitis Caused by Molluscs
Of the five classes belonging to this phylum, three are particularly toxic: Lamellibranchs, that have a bivalve shell (mussels, clams, oysters, scallops), Gasteropods, and Cephalopods (octopus, squid, cuttlefish).


Baboon syndrome from i.v. aminophylline in a patient allergic to ethylenediamine
Treatment of the wound with hot water did not seem to inactivate the octopus salivary gland toxin, judging by the long persistence of cutaneous effects.
Wandering fixed drug eruption: a mucocutaneous reaction to acetaminophen.
Acetaminophen appears to be an uncommon cause of fixed drug eruption, with a tendency for lesions to appear at the same or at different sites in flares, perhaps because of a prolonged refractory period and the tendency to become completely refractories in some locations.
The blue-ringed octopus bite and envenomation syndrome.
The bite from one of the small, pretty octopuses belonging to the Genus Hapalochlaena may result in the death of a healthy human being from hypoxia consequent to respiratory paralysis, which may be avoided by effective resuscitation.
Fatal and non‐fatal stingray envenomation (for editorial comment, see page 610; see also pages 625, 626 and 708)
A fatality occurred in a previously healthy 12‐year‐old boy after a penetrating chest injury from a stingray barb which was secondary to venom‐induced, localized myocardial necrosis and spontaneous perforation, six days after the direct penetration of the right ventricle by the barb.
Systemic contact dermatitis from Orinase and Diabinese in diabetics with para-amino hypersensitivity.
Diabetic patients sensitized by topical medication containing such para-amino compounds as sulfanilamide and benzocaine can acquire a widespread eczematous "systemic" contact dermatitis from the oral
Current challenges in marine envenomation: an overview
Toxinologic study of marine venoms indicates that Irukandji and Chironex venoms are of particular significance, and Venom retrieval, purification, fractionation, lability, and immunology (including antibody cloning) are current research challenges.
Dangerous aquatic animals of the world : a color atlas : with prevention, first aid, and emergency treatment procedures
In over 470 colourful photographs, this book captures the beauty of these creatures and offers a rich source of facts about them.
Funnelweb–Spider Venom Antagonist
It was found in a series of experiments on anaesthetized monkeys that rat plasma and rat euglobulin fractions contain a substance which could offer some protection against funnelwebspider
