In conclusion, oil of mustard, contained in many plants and recognized mainly as a skin irritant, is also capable of causing an allergic contact dermatitis. Nasturtium, which contains mustard oil, should be added to the list of plants capable of causing this dermatitis and must be suspected in any patient who handles plants and presents with hand dermatitis.
