Allergic reaction to acrylic resin in a patient with a provisional crown: case report


Mesquita, Alfredo Mikail Melo; Silva, Juliano H M; Kojima, Alberto Noryuki; Moura, Renata Vasconcelos; Giovani, Elcio Madaglena; Özcan, Mutlu (2017). Allergic reaction to acrylic resin in a patient with a provisional crown: case report. Brazilian Dental Science, 20(1):115.

Abstract

Acrylic resins are widely used in dentistry, especially in orthodontics and prosthetics. Patients: this article reports the case of a leukodermic 33-year-old male who reported discomfort and pain due to an erythematous lesion in the first left premolar after the placement of an acrylic resin temporary restoration. Discussion: The signs and symptoms presented by the patient and his report of visiting the rural countryside generated concern regarding the possible diagnosis, which led to a more invasive biopsy to differentiate allergic inflammation from a paracococcidioid mycosisIncisional. Biopsy revealed a chronic inflammatory process. Conclusion: the pathology was caused by contact with methyl methacrylate-based provisional acrylic resin.
