In our department, gold sodium thiosulfate has become the 2nd most common allergen in routinely patch tested dermatitis patients, with a rate around 10%. Test reactions to this compound often appear late, sometimes so late that active sensitization may be suspected. This study was performed to study the time course of the allergic reaction to gold sodium thiosulfate and to elucidate whether late test reactions mean active sensitization. 10 patients with contact allergy to gold sodium… Expand
Contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate
TLDR
Simultaneous allergies to nickel and cobalt were statistically significant in patients with positive patch tests to gold sodium thiosulfate and potassium dicyanoaurate and, finally, to try to clarify the clinical relevance. Expand
Clinical reactions to systemic provocation with gold sodium thiomalate in patients with contact allergy to gold
TLDR
The most spectacular clinical reaction in the 10 patients given the active agent, was an epidermal and dermal flare up of healed patch‐test reactions to the gold salts, as well as a high, but transient, rise in body temperature. Expand
A preliminary study of gold sensitization in Singapore
TLDR
A high sensitization rate of 6.4% to gold is found, but only 3 out of 22 patients with positive reactions had clinically relevant reactions, all of which could be traced to gold jewellery. Expand
Percutaneous absorption of gold sodium thiosulfate used for patch testing
Contact allergy to gold has been shown to be correlated to wearing of golden jewellery as well as to the presence of dental gold. The prerequisite for sensitization and elicitation of an allergicExpand
Long‐lasting patch reactions to gold sodium thiosulfate occurs frequently in healthy volunteers
TLDR
The results indicate that inclusion of GSTS in routine patch testing may cause problems regarding interpretation and clinical relevance of positive GSTS patch tests, which fulfil the clinical criteria of a contact allergy. Expand
Response to: Can patch test sensitization with gold sodium thiosulfate be ruled out?—A case report
TLDR
The patient presented with facial dermatitis, has ongoing gold exposure, and developed a positive reaction to GST in a time frame characteristic for patients with known gold allergy—this is consistent with gold allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) until proven otherwise. Expand
Late reactions in patch tests: a 4‐year review from a clinic of occupational dermatology
TLDR
Late reactions meeting the classic criteria of active sensitization were relatively common in a series of late patch test reactions from a special clinic of occupational dermatology. Expand
Retrospective evaluation of the consequence of alleged patch test sensitization
TLDR
The results and the literature indicate that development of clinical contact dermatitis following patch test sensitization is very rare, especially from standard allergens, and if the test is carried out according to internationally accepted guidelines. Expand
Long‐lasting allergic patch test reactions: a study of patients with positive standard patch tests
TLDR
It was found that a Kathon CG sensitivity was the most important risk factor for LLAPTR, followed by strong patch test reaction, and sex, age and sensitivity to nickel sulfate, potassium dichromate, Disperse Blue 124 and fragrance mix were rejected. Expand
Gold trichloride and gold sodium thiosulfate as markers of contact allergy to gold
TLDR
It is concluded that GTC can elicit positive patch test reactions in patients with gold allergy but to a lesser degree when compared with GSTS, and GSTS is still the test agent of choice. Expand

High frequency of contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate
TLDR
It is suggested that a positive skin test to gold sodium thiosulfate represents gold allergy, the 2nd most common contact allergen after nickel sulfate. Expand
The histological and immunohistochemical pattern of positive patch test reactions to gold sodium thiosulfate.
TLDR
According to histopathological findings, long-lasting patch test reactions to gold sodium thiosulfate were characterized by an intense lymphocytic dermal infiltrate without epidermal involvement, reflecting a true contact allergy to gold salt. Expand
Clinical relevance of contact allergy to gold sodium thiosulfate.
TLDR
Exposure to gold jewelry and to dental gold may be important in the sensitization and elicitation of dermatitis. Expand
Oral manifestations of gold allergy.
TLDR
Sensitization to gold should be considered as a possible cause of allergic contact dermatitis and allergic contact stomatitis as well as a pathogenic or triggering factor in OLP. Expand
Long‐lasting allergic patch test reaction caused by gold
TLDR
Gold sodium thiosulfate, gold sodium thiomalate and auranofin can be used as patch test substances for gold allergy, though long‐lasting allergic patch test reactions may develop. Expand
