Contact Dermatitis. 1975 Oct;1(5):311-3.

Occupational contact dermatitis from Cichorium (chicory, endive) and Lactuca (lettuce).

Abstract

In two cases, occupational contact dermatitis was found to be due to chicory (Cichorium) used as a salad plant. In one of the two cases, contact sensitivity to letuce (Lactuca) was also observed. The sesquiterpene lactones of the plant may be the allergens.
