Borkowski PK. [Parasitophobic patient suffering from scabies treated with ivermectin--a case report]. Przegl Epidemiol. 2007;61(1):103-6.
We present a case of an atypical, difficult to diagnose crusted scabies caused by the invasion of non-human parasite (probably horse scabies Psoroptes equi) treated successfully by a rarely used in Europe antiparasitic agent-ivermectin. This inconvenient parasitemia additionally triggered parasitophobia--all of that together complicates the approach.
