Atypical and unusual clinical manifestations of contact dermatitis to clothing (textile contact dermatitis): Case presentation and review of the literature. Aneta Lazarov MD1, Mario Cordoba MD2, Natalia Plosk MD3, David Abraham MD1
Dermatology Online Journal 9 (3): 1
Although the exact incidence of textile contact dermatitis is unknown, recent studies demonstrate that contact dermatitis produced by allergic or irritant reactions to clothing not only is more frequent than previously thought but also increasing. The clinical features of contact dermatitis (CD) caused by clothing may resemble common allergic contact dermatitis or may have atypical presentations. We report on several cases of clothing-induced contact dermatitis with atypical clinical presentations.
The exact incidence of textile contact dermatitis is unknown, but recent studies demonstrate that contact dermatitis produced by allergic or irritant reactions to clothing is more frequent than previously thought. It also has been shown that the frequency of textile-dye allergy is increasing.
The clinical features of contact dermatitis (CD) caused by clothing may resemble common allergic contact dermatitis or may have atypical presentations. The diagnosis of contact dermatitis caused by clothing may be difficult in some cases because of the wide spectrum of clinical presentations, including unusual clinical patterns and atypical localization.
