Abstract

We present the cases of 5 patients with a positive clinical history of cutaneous symptoms due to contact with latex products. A latex allergological assessment was made through skin prick tests (SPTs) both with commercial latex extracts and extemporaneous glove extracts, and serum-specific IgE to latex and glove-use tests. In addition, serum-specific IgE to recombinant allergens for Hevea brasiliensis was dosed. Molecular diagnostics in association with the glove-use test and, to a lesser extent, the SPTs with glove eluate are useful diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis of latex allergy in patients with mucocutaneous symptoms.
