    Contact Dermatitis Caused by Ginkgo

    Keiji Sugiura* and Mariko Sugiura

    We reported a female with a delayed-type allergic skin reaction caused by ginkgo nuts and trees. Patch tests showed positive reactions to ginkgo extracts and ursiol. The sensitized stage of her contact dermatitis might involve taking a walk or picking up gingko nuts, and the provocation stage might occur when walking along the street.
