Abstract

A study to evaluate the possibility of contact dermatitis to Euphorbia pulcherrima was carried out in 31 subjects employed in 2 floriculture centres. 4 of 31 subjects patch tested to latex of E. pulcherrima were positive; 3 of them were positive to an aqueous extract of the leaves. The clinical picture, patch test results and histology suggest allergic contact dermatitis to E. pulcherrima.
