A case of a 21-year-old nurse with the clinical features of contact urticaria due to latex is presented. Urticaria on the hands provoked by latex content rubber gloves was followed by generalized urticaria, angio-oedem and dyspnoe. The latex sensibilisation was provoked by Prick test and by the demonstration of specific IgE antibodies. The case presentation calls the attention to this condition which somehow is left out of consideration in Hungary.
