Allergic contact dermatitis caused by medical devices for diabetes patients: A review.


:Allergic contact dermatitis caused by medical devices for diabetes patients has been increasingly described in the literature in the last few years. This article reviews the cases of allergic contact dermatitis caused by insulin pumps and glucose sensors reported since the 1970s, the culprit allergen(s), the results of patch tests and/or chromatographic analysis, and preventive measures.
