Most cases having air-borne contact dermatitis (ABCD) in India are considered to be caused by Parthenium hysterophorus. In some cases however, other plants have also been noticed to give positive patch test reactions. We are reporting two cases presenting as ABCD who showed positive patch tests with Xanthium strumarium while the patch tests with Parthenium hysterophorus were negative, it is therefore necessary to realise that every case of ABCD is not caused by Parthenium, and patch testing with Parthenium alonecan lead to serious mistakes.
