CRIADO, Paulo Ricardo  and  CRIADO, Roberta Fachini Jardim. Ixodiasis disclosed by epiluminescence microscopy without skin contact. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2010, vol.85, n.3, pp.389-390. ISSN 0365-0596.

We describe the case of a 48-year-old healthy man who sought for medical help in our clinic with multiple pruriginous erythematous papules after a 2-day trip to "Serra da Mantiqueira". (Mantiqueira Mountain). A meticulous physical exam with a portable epiluminescence microscopy showed several ticks on a larval form on the skin of the patient.

Keywords : Dermoscopy; Ixodes; Tick infestations; Ticks.
