We present two cases of sensitization to phenylephrine hydrochloride with clinical manifestation of blepharoconjunctivitis in the course of an ophthalmologic examination. Patch testing with available commercial preparations containing phenylephrine hydrochloride was positive in both patients.
The other eye drops tested during the ophthalmologic examination were negative for both cases.
