of the hands, forearms and legs for 15 days. A few days later, dermatitis affected both eyelids. She was a chicken vaccinator and used ceftiofur sodium (NaxceJ®). Patch tests with the Spanish standard series and NaxceJ® (ceftiofur sodium 1%, 2%, 1% aq. and excipient of monobasic sodium phosphate, benzyl alcohol and water, as is) were performed. Positive reactions to nickel sulfate and all 3 dilutions of ceftiofur sodium were obtained. 

Topics from this paper

Tetrazepam drug sensitivity − usefulness of the patch test
TLDR
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.
Photodermatitis from tetrazepam
TLDR
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.
Delayed hypersensitivity to tetrazepam
TLDR
The attempt to reproduce CU lesions during remission with the patient's serum dating from a symptomatic period failed, suggesting that no cold-sensitive factor was present in the serum or that it was removed by freezing and/or storage of the serum.
Severe contact allergy to footwear in a young child
TLDR
With these strategies and topical corticosteroids, the lesions improved gradually and disappeared in 3 weeks with no recurrence in a 6-month follow-up.
Systemic contact dermatitis of the eyelids caused by formaldehyde derived from aspartame?
TLDR
A 60-year-old Caucasian woman presented with a 6-month history of eyelid dermatitis, and within 1 week of discontinuing theaspartame, her eyeliddermatitis resolved completely and has not recurred over 18 months without specific treatment.
Cold panniculitis – an unusual differential diagnosis from aluminium allergy in a patient hyposensitized with aluminium‐precipitated antigen extract
TLDR
Dermatitis relapsed acutely 2 months later, however, within 4 h of the patient wearing a strongly-coloured cotton scarf (black with a teddy bear motif) made in India, which had also been worn before the preceding episodes.
Occupational allergic contact dermatitis from tetrazepam in nurses
TLDR
Tetrazepam is a muscle relaxant belonging to the benzodiazepine group and its use in clinical practice is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.
Occupational airborne contact dermatitis from benzodiazepines and other drugs
TLDR
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.
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
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis due to tetrazepam.
TLDR
Results support previous data suggesting an important role for IL-8 and drug-specific T cells in the pathogenesis ofAGEP and imply that the reaction was specific to tetrazepam with no cross-reactivity to other benzodiazepines.

Occupational airborne allergic contact dermatitis from tylosin
TLDR
Most of the authors' patients had long-standing eczemas, perhaps enhancing the risk of sensitization, and contact allergy to bufexamac should be considered.

A rare instance of contact-type urticaria resulting from an acquired sensitization to cephalosporin compounds in a chemist is reported. Patch tests elicited an immediate urticarial rather than a
Penicillin allergy with positive skin test to cephalosporin alone
TLDR
A 45-year-old woman who had an acute tonsillitis 4 years ago and was treated with 2 g daily of ampicillin (Farmitalia) developed a generalised urticarial eruption with mucous membrane oedema, itching, fever and polyarthralgia in September 1981.
Tetrazepam allergy once more detected by patch test
In February 1989, a 63-year-old man, with lumbar intervertebral degenerative arthritis, presented with maculopapular to purpuric lesions on the legs, which had appeared some days after the
Contact dermatitis from diazepoxides
TLDR
A 37-year-old housewife developed eczema on the forefinger of theright hand in December 1991, which later spread to the dorsum of the right hand, eyelids, neck and cheeks, finding positive reactions to clorazepate and valpromide.
Tetrazepam allergy detected by patch test
Case no. 1. A 71-year-old man, with cervical arthralgia for 2 years, was successfully treated with 50 mg ofMyolastan® (tetrazepam) daily, taken at night, and 16 mg of Fidium® (betahistidine
Patch testing in adverse drug reactions to penicillin and cephalosporin
TLDR
The value of patch testing in the diagnosis of adverse drug reactions is indicated and a possible cross reaction between penicillin, its derivatives and cephalosporins is supported: the latter compounds have the same antigenic determinant, namely the ~-lactam ring.
Delayed hypersensitivity to cefuroxime
TLDR
From the results, the prevalence of hand eczema has been estimated, and the reported prevalence of psoriasis is, however, in concordance with other Scandinavian epidemiologic studies.
Delayed hypersensitivity drug reactions diagnosed by patch testing
TLDR
Attempts to diagnose delayed hypersensitivity drug eruptions by patch testing are reviewed, control data is reviewed, and an operational definition is offered that might make for greater acceptance of the rôle of diagnostic patch testing in this entity.
