We present a case of allergic contact dermatitis in a patient after multiple orthopaedic procedures. The patient demonstrated a foreign body reaction as well as classic contact dermatitis in response to two exposures to Dermabond. Both reactions were successfully treated with topical corticosteroids. As the popularity of Dermabond increases within the medical community, awareness of potential complications is necessary to improve patient care and outcomes.
