Abstract: A patient who had recently had renal transplant was on a maintenance regimen of azathioprine and prednisone. She developed a florid, scaling, papular eruption clinically identical to Darler disease. Biopsy specimens and skin scrapings, however, showed a scabietic infestation. We believe that this highly atypical presenation, which had several features found in Norwegian scabies, was due to muted inflammatory response that permitted a great proliferation of the mites.

“…As a result recovered carriers (De Vos and Roos, 1983) develop patent infections. Ectoparasite immunosuppression has been observed with mite infestation (Paterson, Allen andBeveridge, 1973, Anolik andRudolph, 1976) and ticks where it affects immunological response to heterologous antigens too (Njau, unpub.). The disease reaction in some animals at Pugu was refractory to treatment and they died of the disease.…”
