Abstract

The Ranunculus sceleratus Linne is a plant which belongs to Ranunculus Linne, Ranu-nculaceae. We report a case of contact dermatitis due to Rannunculus sceleratus Linne. The patient developed painful, inflamed erythematous patches with a tense bullae on application sites of the crushed plant for the therapy of arthralgia on both knees. We did patch tests on a health volunteer and topical application of a rabbit's skin with its crushed leaf, stalk and root. Their results were compared with each other.
