Abstract

An unexplained outbreak of skin disorder with itching papules or pustules occurred among drugs body packers in a detention clinic in the Netherlands in October-November 2002. The descriptive cohort study suggests this outbreak could be associated with an expired batch of disposable linens, with an overall attack rate of 30% in the study population (n=118). No additionnal cases have been noted since this expired batch was replaced.
