Not adjusted natural and artificial textile materiály cause ahnost no problems in contact with the slon in the sense of contact eczema-dermatitis. The most frequent reason of contact dermatitis due to textile materiály are the textile dyes. Typical is an acute course and localisation in the areas of Glose contact of clothes and the slon, where friction and perspiration is maximal.There are not many reports about such caues when compared with the large number of different dyes used in textile industry.It is described the tase of a man, who wore the coloured cotton flannel shirt. In several hours he developed typical acute eczema-dermatitis on both sides of his neck, axillar regions and ventral parts of arms.The patch testy with the European standard series of common contact aleergeny TROLAB proved negative results. The patch testy with the material of two shirts led to papular and vesicular eruption in the places of the contact with dark vine-red coloured flbres.There esere no information available of the manufacturer of the shirts and textile material and dyes used in them, so it is very difficult to determine the exact dye which is the contact allergen in this tase. It could be only supposed that it is a dye, which is solubile in water and which may belong to the azo- or antrachinon type of dyes.

Key words:
