Abstract

Sodium fusidate, obtained by fermentation of the fungus, Fusidium coccineum has a steroid structure and shows a very high anti-staphylococcal activity. The allergic potential of sodium fusidate is low and few cases of contact allergy to sodium fusidate have been reported. We present two cases of allergic contact dermatitis to Fucidin ointment®, one developed postoperative dressing of a skin biopsy and the other after laser treatment of a vascular nevi. The patch test results showed positive reaction to sodium fusidate in both cases.
