We present two cases of crusted scabies who were successfully treated with acitretin. Case 1. An 83-year-old woman was admitted to our Department because of a crusted dermatitis. The patient stated that she was in therapy with metoprolol and levodopa/benserazide for essential arterial hypertension and Parkinson's disease. The patient also stated that the dermatitis had appeared approximately six months earlier. It was diagnosed at other centres as allergic contact dermatitis and unsuccessfully treated with topical and oral corticosteroids, and oral anti-histamines.

Abstract

We present two cases of crusted scabies who were successfully treated with acitretin. Case 1. An 83-year-old woman was admitted to our Department because of a crusted dermatitis. The patient stated that she was in therapy with metoprolol and levodopa/benserazide for essential arterial hypertension and Parkinson's disease. The patient also stated that the dermatitis had appeared approximately six months earlier. It was diagnosed at other centres as allergic contact dermatitis and unsuccessfully treated with topical and oral corticosteroids, and oral anti-histamines.
