Abstract [en]

survey was undertaken in all ice hockey players in 26 professional teams in Sweden representing the two highest divisions. All players answered a questionnaire and the players from six teams, three from each of the two divisions, were patch tested with 72 test preparations in a baseline series supplemented with a series representing the work environment of the players. For practical reasons, the patch testing and test reading on day 3 took place in the arenas of the teams. As a traditional dermatologist reading on day 7 was impossible to perform in all but one team, the players and coaches were asked to use their mobile phones to take photos of the tested backs of the players on day 7 and to send them to the investigative team. In one team a dermatologist reading took place on day 7 independently of the mobile phone photos. In total, 107 players in the six teams were patch tested, and a reading on day 3 was performed in 103. Fifty contact allergic reactions were noted in 26 players. When comparing the reactions present on day 3 with the photos from day 7, seven (14%) more positive reactions were registered. The seven additional reactions were noted to seven different sensitizers: hexavalent chromium, oxidized linalool, thiomersal, mercapto mix, mercaptobenzothiazole, PFR-2 (a resol resin based on phenol and formaldehyde) and methylenedianiline. In summary, 14% more contact allergic reactions were diagnosed when using photos of the tested backs to replace the traditional dermatologist reading.
