Diffuse Nickel Hypersensitivity Reaction Post-cholecystectomy in a Young Female

Nickel has aided in medical advancements; however, it has been known to cause hypersensitivity reactions. Retained foreign bodies due to surgical procedures may cause postoperative complications such as allergic reactions. This case demonstrates a delayed hypersensitivity reaction to a foreign body involving multiple body systems and vague symptoms making the diagnosis challenging. It also brings attention to the necessity of performing metal skin patch tests preoperatively for individuals with a history of any type of allergies.
