An 80-year-old woman presented with a 3-week history of diffuse pruritus with nocturnal worsening. She denied any comorbidities or drug use. Dermatological examination revealed erythematous-purple macules and excoriated lesions localized on her trunk, upper limbs, and genitals (Fig. 1). Similar symptoms and lesions were also present in close family members and the suspected diagnosis was scabies. Dermoscopy was negative for scabies, but during the examination a small red-black coloured mite (< 1 mm) was observed moving on the patient’s back skin

Abstract

An 80-year-old woman presented with a 3-week history of diffuse pruritus with nocturnal worsening. She denied any comorbidities or drug use. Dermatological examination revealed erythematous-purple macules and excoriated lesions localized on her trunk, upper limbs, and genitals (Fig. 1). Similar symptoms and lesions were also present in close family members and the suspected diagnosis was scabies. Dermoscopy was negative for scabies, but during the examination a small red-black coloured mite (< 1 mm) was observed moving on the patient’s back skin
