Abstract

KOVACS, Fabiana Thais; SILVEIRA, Vera Magalhães da  and  BANDEIRA, Aurilene Monteiro. Scabies involving head and neck: do we recognize it?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.1, pp.83-85. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962008000100011.

Although the head and neck are known to be affected by scabies in older children and adults, the literature is quite scarce on this topic. A study with 124 patients aged 5 years or older with classic scabies was carried out to investigate, describe and photographically register lesions on head and neck. These sites were affected in 35.8% of cases, and the lesions more often observed were crusts, erythematous papules with or without excoriations and crusts, and scaling around lesions.

Keywords : Diagnosis; Head; Neck; Scabies.
