Bei zwei Patienten mit typischem Xeroderma pigmentosum wurde das Verhalten der allergischen Spätreaktion nach DNCB-Sensibilisierung untersucht. Bei keinem der Patienten konnte durch Routinesensibilisierung eine Kontaktallergie gegenüber DNCB ausgelöst werden. Die Bedeutung dieser Beobachtung wird diskutiert.
