Abstract

Allergic reaction to different fruits and vegetables has frequently been described, but an allergic reaction to mango fruit, including its sap, pericarp, stems and leaves, has rarely reported in the literature. Mango dermatitis, although not common, is the term for allergic contact dermatitis caused by mango. The Mango plant is found worldwide, and the plant shares chemical compounds that are similar to other substances of the Anacardiaceae plant. The substances uroshiol and cardol cause the allergic contact dermatitis. Any case of allergic contact dermatitis with eating mango fruit has not been reported in the Korean dermatologic literature. Here we report the first case of mango contact dermatitis in a 20-years-old female and this happened when she drank mango juice.
