What’s already known about this topic?

•Filaggrin gene (FLG) loss-of-function mutations increase the risk of developing atopic dermatitis (AD).

It has been reported that FLG mutations are associated with irritant contact dermatitis (ICD); however, it is unclear whether they are an independent risk factor or work through AD.

What does this study add?

FLG mutations are associated with ICD even when adjusted for AD.

• Individuals with concurrent FLG mutations [odds ratio (OR) 1·61] and AD (OR 2·89) are at the highest risk of developing ICD (combined OR 4·7).
