Nickel is an important component of this alloy and may release and provoke sensitivity. Arising local and systemic cutaneous reactions. Nickel is the material composing stainless steel that ordinary is implicated in cutaneous reactions of sensitivity; the role of chrome or cobalt is still uncertain. Our patient is a woman affected of nickel contact dermatitis, with generalized reactions that appear after an implant of a stainless steel orthopaedic prosthesis.
