A case of airborne contact dermatitis in a seedsman due to tulip bulbs is reported. The eczema finally involved the whole integument, It was caused by small particles from the outer layers of the bulbs, which arise when the bulbs are rubbed together. These particles, which contain the sensitizer tuliposide-A, contaminated the whole environment of the seed shop and the car and clothes of the patient. Epicutaneous tests were strongly positive with tuliposide-A as well as with an extract of the dust taken from the patient's office. (J AM ACAD DERMATOL 7:500-503, 1982.)
