    Allergic contact dermatitis to plastic banknotes.
    Australas J Dermatol 1999 Aug;40(3):164-6
    Skin and Cancer Foundation, Carlton, Victoria, Australia.
    Allergic contact dermatitis to ultraviolet (UV) cured acrylates occurs predominantly in occupationally exposed workers. Two men presented with dermatitis coinciding with the location of banknotes in their pockets. Patch testing confirmed allergic contact dermatitis to multiple acrylates and Australian plastic banknotes. This is the first report of contact allergy to acrylates present in Australian plastic banknotes.

    Dermatological examinations were performed in 81 workers involved in the manufacture of electric coils for television displays, who had worked for 4 years in contact with a glue containing isobornyl acrylate, acrylic acid, N,N dimethyleneacrylamide, phosphine oxide, bis(2,6-dimethoxybenzoyl) (2,4,4-trimethylpentyl)- and beta-carboxyethyl acrylate. The glue was cured by 350-500-nm ultraviolet and visible radiations. Acrylate-specific dermal lesions were detected in 21 (25. Read More
