Contact Dermatitis 44(5):309, 2001

A case report of a woman who developed dermatitis to a transmitter placed on the abdomen that sent radio waves to an implanted neurostimulatory receiver for angina.

Patch tests with the plastic, rubber and glue of the transmitter were negative, as well as those with various components of the device from the manufacturer. She had skin symptoms only after starting stimulation, with spontaneous improvement in between times.
