The product of agglomerating iron ore fines, concentrates, iron sinter, and other iron-bearing materials. Includes pellets, nodules and briquettes.
Over 2.5 years, 623 patients that attended an Austrian allergy clinic
were patch-tested for hypersensitivity to metals, including iron salts.
Of those patients, only 5 had positive results and 2 had suspicious
results. These 7 were tested for other sensitivity to iron, including
iron oxides. Upon retest of 6 of the 7, only 2 had re-confirmed iron
sensitivity, none to iron oxide. The positive reactions of these
patients did not have much clinical significance, though implantation of
a stainless steel prosthesis might have been connected to case 1's
reaction. Positive patch-test results should be investigated because
reactions cannot be confirmed on retest. In these results, iron
sensitivity was always associated with nickel and cobalt sensitivity,
which raises the probability of cross-reactivity.
