Abstract

A 21-year-old worker developed itching, fissuring and exudative lesions on her hands and fingers, 3 years after working as a cutter in the cashew nut factory. The lesions would improve during holidays or after she left her job. Patch tests were positive with the 0.1% cashew nut shell oil in polyethylene glycol and also with the red pericarp covering and the kernel of cashew nuts used as such.
