Abstract: Reports on airborne dermatoses are mainly published in the context of occupational settings. Hence, in recent years, dermatologists and also occupational physicians have become increasingly aware of the airborne source of contact dermatitis, resulting mainly from exposure to irritants or allergens. However, their occurrence is still underestimated, because reports often omit the term `airborne' in relation to dust or volatile allergens. For the present update, we screened the journals `Contact Dermatitis' (July 2000 to December 2006); `Dermatitis', formerly named` American Journal of Contact Dermatitis'; `La Lettre du Gerda' (January 2000 to December 2006); and also included relevant articles from other journals published during the same period. This resulted in an updated list of airborne dermatitis causes.
