Sammanfattning

Acetophenone azine (AA) has recently been identified as a new allergen in shin pads and sports shoes. We report the case of a boy with allergic contact dermatitis of the shins caused by AA present in his shin pads. High-performance liquid chromatography of samples of shin pads was performed to help identify potential contact allergens. Patch tests revealed strongly positive reactions to pieces of his shin pads and to AA down to a concentration of 0.001% in acetone. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of allergic contact dermatitis to AA in the United Kingdom. Here we recommend the optimal concentration of AA for patch testing at 0.1% in acetone and summarize previous relevant published cases.
