Abstract: Background: Current frequency and features for positivity to textile dye mix (TDM) in Spain are unknown. Objectives: To study the frequency, clinical features and simultaneous positivity between TDM, para-phenylenediamine (PPD) and specific disperse dyes. Materials and Methods: We analysed all consecutive patients patch-tested with TDM from the Spanish Contact Dermatitis Registry (REIDAC), from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2022. Within this group, we studied all selected patients patch-tested with a textile dye series. Results: Out of 6128 patients analysed, 3.3% were positive to the TDM and in 34% of them, the sensitisation was considered currently relevant. TDM positivity was associated with working as a hairdresser/beautician and scalp, neck/trunk and arm/forearm dermatitis. From TDM-positive patients, 57% were positive to PPD. One hundred and sixty-four patients were patch-tested with the textile dye series. Disperse Orange 3 was the most frequent positive dye (16%). One of every six cases positive to any dye from the textile dye series would have been missed if patch-tested with the TDM alone. Conclusions: Positivity to TDM is common in Spain and often associated with PPD sensitisation. TDM is a valuable marker of disperse dyes allergy that should be part of the Spanish and European standard series.
