Title
Airborne-induced lymphomatoid contact dermatitis caused by methylisothiazolinone
Author
Abstract
Methylisothiazolinone (MI) is, in Belgium (1) and elsewhere, now an extremely frequent cause of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD), owing to its presence in cosmetics and paints, in particular, but also in detergents. Allergic contact reactions are primarily eczematous skin reactions, but occasionally may present as non-eczematous eruptions (2), such as erythema multiforme-like, lichen planus-like or lymphomatoid reactions; this may lead to a delay in reaching the correct diagnosis. Here, we present the case of a woman who had experienced face and neck dermatitis for several years, and who presented with a lymphomatoid eruption for which MI was determined to be the contact allergen that was primarily responsible.
