Abstract

Among patients with a history of metal sensitivity, 50 were patch-test-negative to nickel, cobalt and chromate. 20 of them were further examined epicutaneously and intracutaneously. They were also studied with a clinical diagnostic method for symptoms and signs of atopy. Most patients in this category were found to be atopic.
