“…The molecular evidence concerning whether there are indeed different hostspecific varieties of S scabiei is contradictory (Zahler et al 1999, Skerrat et al 2002, Morrison et al 2003, although recent molecular studies indicate consistent gene sequence differences between human and other animal S scabiei strains , Heukelbach et al 2005. However, the ability of mites to cross the species barrier and establish patent infections seems well established (Goldman and Feldman 1949, Walton et al 1997.…”

“…in a zoo. Nine died after suffering a severe hyperkeratotic pruritic dermatitis, which was also contracted by the handlers 105 . A case of scabies was also noted in a colony‐born Bonnet macaque ( Macaca radiata ) 106 .…”

“…Gross lesions include thickening and scaling of the skin and severe alopecia. The severe itching can result in self-mutilation, with secondary hemorrhage and suppurative bacterial dermatitis [290,334,523,791,864,891]. Death of a chimpanzee has been ascribed to a severe S. scabiei infection [675].…”

“…Sarcoptes scabiei infections in nonhuman primates are transmissible to humans by direct contact [290,334,742,891,931]. Thus, infected nonhuman primates, or those suspected of being infected, should be handled with caution by those responsible for their care and management [290].…”
