A 52-year-old non-atopic healthy female Caucasian developed severe hand eczema after 13 years of working as a nurse. No recent changes had occurred in her work activities. The bouts of eczema correlated with her occupational activity. She washed and disinfected her hands at least ten times a day. On days off work the eczema improved and disappeared on holidays lasting longer than a week, to then flare up within three days after returning to work. The eczema developed despite the patient's consistent use of personal protection equipment. She experienced an aggravation of her symptoms especially after intense disinfection of her hands - a frequent task during her daily work. This article is protected by copyright.
