Zusammenfassung: 
A 54 year old female hairdresser suffered from occupational irritant contact dermatitis of the hands. As a complication of hand dermatitis, secondary lymphoedema developed following recurrent erysipelas. Fissures occurring in the course of the hand dermatitis presumably enabled entry of streptococci. Treatment of this complication of occupational dermatitis was reimbursed by the Employers Liability Insurance.
