Positive nickel patch tests in infants are of low clinical relevance and rarely reproducible

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

We have previously reported patch test reactivity to nickel sulphate in a cohort of unselected infants tested repeatedly at 3-18 months of age. A reproducible positive reaction at 12 and 18 months was selected as a sign of nickel sensitivity provided a patch test with an empty Finn chamber was negative. A reproducible positive reaction was seen in 8.6% of the infants. The objective of this study is to follow-up on infants with alleged nickel sensitivity.
