Abstract

The term 'occupational protein contact dermatitis' was coined in 1976 by Hjorth & Roed-Petersen for a distinctive dermatitis characterized by an immediate wheal and flare reaction on chronically-inflamed skin, occurring 20-30 min after contact with foods. Numerous cases have since been reported, mostly from Scandinavia, showing that preparing food caries a high risk, especially for atopics. We report 11 further cases, 8 in professional food handlers.
