“…The addition of marked thrombocytopenia and an incorrect physical examination finding of corneal dendritic lesions in this infant further complicated the diagnosis. We could find no previous case reports of thrombocytopenia in the setting of neonatal scabies; an isolated case report of an adult with Norwegian scabies and thrombocytopenia 9 demonstrates a potential association, but it is likely that if the correct diagnosis is initially identified, no laboratory work is performed. As a result, the prevalence of thrombocytopenia in scabies infestation may be unknown.…”

“…1 Crusted scabies, caused by the same mite, occurs in immunocompromised patients, including organ transplant recipients and those with human immunodeficiency virus, lymphoma, leprosy, or other conditions that compromise cellular immunity. 2 It is a psoriasiform dermatitis characterized by crusted and hyperkeratotic plaques or nodules, often in an acral distribution, high levels of immunoglobulin E and G, and in some patients, peripheral eosinophilia. In contrast to patients who present with classic scabies, most of whom report severe itching, approximately 50% of those with crusted scabies report only mild pruritus or no pruritus at all.…”
