Unusual distributions of contact dermatitis often lead to identification of the offending agent. We present a case of unilateral dermatitis of the chest developing in a patient with a history of allergy to metal. A name tag attached magnetically to his work uniform was identified as the cause of the eruption. Unilateral eruption of the chest can be a manifestation of allergic contact dermatitis to metal objects in breast pockets or attached to clothing.
