Immediate contact skin reactions are considered a subset of the contact urticaria syndrome, which includes contact urticaria and protein contact dermatitis (PCD). These entities clinically manifest as development of wheals, erythema, and/or eczema within minutes after contact with proteins or low-molecular-weight allergens. Herein, we report a case compatible with a PCD caused by exposure to mango fruit.
