Background and Objective:
Hand dermatitis is the most common subtype of occupation-related skin disease. Regardless of its underlying cause, hand dermatitis results in significant impairment and a negative impact on quality of life. Any case of unilateral hand dermatitis should have a high index of suspicion for an allergic contact dermatitis.
We report two cases of unilateral hand dermatitis. The first case is a 53-year-old female with a unilateral dermatitis of the left hand. The second case is a 53-year-old male with dermatitis of the right hand. Both cases highlight an interesting presentation of unilateral hand allergic contact dermatitis secondary to an occupational exposure.
