A case of occupational contact dermatitis due to epoxy resins is reported. A 27-year-old man, with a 6-year history of pruritic eruptions on his hands consulted our clinic. We treated him with topical steroids and antiallergic agents, however, the lesions gradually worsened. He was thereafter given a series of patch tests using various products in his work place to find the causative product. The patch test demonstrated positive reactions to bisphenol A epoxy-resin. After making changes in the work environment, his symptoms improved.
