Although titanium is considered as the biocompatible material and widely used in medical and dental fields, the clinical application of this material is still a critical issue due to the possible adverse host response. Very few case reports related with titanium-based hypersensitivity reactions with dental implants proved the existence of titanium allergy. The present case report describes 56-year-old male showing allergic symptoms after 1 week of dental implant placement with no perioral or facial signs, but eczema was shown on the distant body parts, and the complete remission was attained after removing the dental implant.
