Abstract

A case of hypertrophic scar developed 3 months after allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) of left upper arm, at the site of application of a henna tattoo 2 weeks earlier, in a 7-year old boy is reported. Patch testing showed a positive reaction to paraphenylenediamine and disperse dyes on day 4. A hypertrophic scar following an ACD to henna with multiple sensitizations reveals that temporary tattoo, born as a safe alternative to permanent tattoos, has an increased risk of permanent side-effects.
