Resumé

We present a case report of occupational allergic rhinoconjunctivitis after exposure to dust from ginger-containing herbal medicine. The likelihood of an aetiological connection between exposure and the patient's symptoms was supported by a temporal association, positive specific IgE, positive histamine release test, positive prick test, and positive acoustic rhinometry test. Occupational allergy to ginger has rarely been reported. The cases described - including the one we present - suggest that work-related IgE-mediated allergy is associated with exposure to dry aerosols/dust.
