Abstract

A severe allergic reaction to a porcelain-fused-to-metal fixed partial denture containing 79% palladium, 2% gold, and 19% copper, resulting in a variety of symptoms and hospitalization of the patient, is reported. The reaction occurred 4 hours after cementation of the fixed partial denture. Suggestions for use of nongold metal alloys are discussed.
