21 children who had cutaneous granulomas following immunization with a vaccine containing aluminium hydroxide, and who had positive patch tests to aqueous aluminium chloride and/or to a Finn Chamber, were followed for 1 to 8 years. During the period of observation, the symptoms cleared in 5 children, improved in 11, and remained unchanged in 5. The course of the granulomas could not be correlated with sex or atopy, nor with intensity of the initial aluminium patch test. 4 children were patch tested again with aluminium.
