Contact dermatitis is defined as "airborne" when the causative factor is present in the environment and may determine irritative or allergic skin reactions. It is often work-related. In this review of the literature, we focus our attention on airborne contact dermatitis due to pharmaceutical compounds. Contact reactions to medications, often occupation-related, occur mainly in two exposed groups: employees of pharmaceutical industries involved in the production of the drugs and healthcare workers who use the drugs for therapeutic aims.
