• Two cases of contact allergy to clobetasol propionate are described. Neither patient had positive epicutaneous tests to other structurally similar fluorinated steroids or to other steroids with the propionate ester, but both had multiple positive tests within the European standard battery. Comparison with previously reported cases reveals that multiple contact allergies are a frequent finding in patients with allergy to this topical steroid.
