Abstract

Abstract Zeisler1 recently reported2 cases of acute dermatitis due to contact with elastiglass. In the 2 cases the dermatitis was either of the follicular-papular or of the eczematous type. Zeisler stated the opinion that this form of dermatitis is due to specific sensitivity induced by intimate and prolonged contact with a heavy nonporous impervious material of a complex chemical nature. Kile2 of Cincinnati and others from various parts of the country have reported numerous cases of dermatitis due to elastiglass wrist bands, garters and suspenders. Recently I have observed 2 cases of folliculopapular dermatitis of the legs due to nylon hosiery. In most of the cases of elastiglass dermatitis the eruptions were of the folliculopapular type, with a few of the eczematous type. The following case is the first one to my knowledge of a bullous dermatitis due to prolonged contact with elastiglass, with distant lesions probably due References 1. Zeisler, E.
