Abstract

We report a case of a 62-years-old male patient with pulmonary tuberculosis newly diagnosed who presented a polymorphic eruption due to an infestation by Sarcoptes scabiei. The authors demonstrate dermoscopic findings of human scabies and emphasize the importance of the use of dermoscopy as a valuable tool in non-traditional indications of its use.
