Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

Results:
Allergic contact dermatitis was diagnosed from the positive results of patch 

tests and type I allergy to latex and common environmental allergens from the 

positive results of prick tests. It was found that the dental personnel was 

hypersensitive primarily to components of disinfectants, metals, rubber and 

fragrances. Acrylates caused allergy only in the dentists (20-25% of all examd. 

patients). Among 20  acrylate-sensitive dentists, 12 reacted to 

Triethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (test concentration: 2.0 % in petrolatum).
