Abstract

We report the case of a 29 year old cook affected by chronic contact dermatitis of the hands and of the forearms. Skin lesions, consisting of erythema, vesicles and scales, worsened after handling squids, calamaries and shellfish. The patient was patch tested with calamary and shellfish. Immediate and delayed scratch tests and 20 minutes open patch tests with the fresh fish were also carried out on normal but previously affected hand skin. The open patch tests and the scratch tests revealed a positive reaction, with erythema, vesicles and itching, to calamary. The possible pathogenesis of protein contact dermatitis is discussed.
