ABSTRACT:
The paper describes an atypical case of simultaneous airborne and direct contact dermatitis in a beekeeper from the Małopolska region. This is the third such case described in a beekeeper in the world and the fi rst in Poland. I suggest that propolis should be regarded as both a direct and airborne contact allergen in beekeepers.
