Resumen

ABOITIZ-RIVERA, Carlos Manuel; BLACHMAN-BRAUN, Ruben  y  FERRER-ARELLANO, Laura Graciela. Reaction to a black henna tattoo treated with mometasone furoate and silicone gel: case report. Rev. chil. pediatr. [online]. 2014, vol.85, n.6, pp.720-723. ISSN 0370-4106.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0370-41062014000600010.

Black henna tattoos have paraphenylenediamine (PPD), which contains a product of herbal origin, which due to its molecular characteristics is capable of inducing, in susceptible individuals, a type IV hypersensitivity reaction. It clinically manifests as a contact dermatitis that usually when it disappears, scarring and hypopigmentation are left in the injured area. Objective: To describe the case of a patient with hypersensitivity to henna tattoo and to present the most relevant phenomena associated with this condition. Case report: The case of a 6 year-old patient with a black henna tattoo on his right leg, who was diagnosed with contact dermatitis probably attributed to PPD, is presented. Mometasone furoate and topical silicone gel treatment was started with good response. Conclusion: Mometasone furoate and silicone gel are a good possible therapeutic option for treating contact dermatitis caused by PPD as the dermatosis was resolved without residual lesions.

Palabras clave : Henna; paraphenylenediamine; type IV hypersensitivity reaction; mometasone furoate; silicone gel.
