Topics from this paper

Delayed hypersensitivity to tetrazepam
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.
Delayed cell‐mediated hypersensitivity to tetrazepam
A 59-year-old man, with degenerative arthritis, was treated daily with 1 capsule of Myolastan® (50 mg tetrazepam) and developed an itchy maculopapular rash and tightness of the chest, without wheezing.
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.
Acute generalized exanthematous pustulosis due to tetrazepam.
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.
Contact dermatitis from diazepoxides
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.
Systemic dermatitis due to tetrazepam.

Toxicodendron succedaneum (Rhus tree), New Zealand's poison ivy
Reactions while on tetrazepam support the value of patch testing in these circumstances, and strict avoidance of all benzodiazepines, by patients with proven allergy to any 1 Benzodiazepine, is justified.
Tetrazepam: an allergen with several clinical expressions
Positive reactions to nickel sulfate and all 3 dilutions of ceftiofur sodium were obtained and dermatitis affected both eyelids in a chicken vaccinator.
Drug patch testing in systemic cutaneous drug allergy.
It is advised to perform drug patch tests during the 6 months following the CADR as the authors do not know whether positive results will persist and it is always necessary to consider the relevance of any positive drug patch test.
Occupational allergic contact dermatitis from methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone (MCI/MI) in a silicone‐emulsion lock lubricant
The patient’s hand eczema has improved significantly since he stopped using both the lock lubricant and the hand cleanser, and he is no longer a vehicle locksmith and electrician.
