Abdigoudarzi M, Mirafzali MS, Belgheiszadeh H - J Arthropod Borne Dis (2013)

Bottom Line: The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae is one of the most economically important ectoparasites in hens and some species of mammals worldwide.They have collected very small animals and carried them to the laboratory which later was confirmed as D. gallinae.They claimed that they had been bitten with this ectoparasite.

ABSTRACT
The poultry red mite, Dermanyssus gallinae is one of the most economically important ectoparasites in hens and some species of mammals worldwide. Cases of human infestation have been reported worldwide. In this study we report infestation in three members of a family referred with pruritus and allergic dermatitis rash. They have collected very small animals and carried them to the laboratory which later was confirmed as D. gallinae. They claimed that they had been bitten with this ectoparasite. This is the first case report of human infestation owing to D. gallinae from Iran.

Mentions: Their medical history and records showed no chronic condition. The specimens were identified through microscopic examination in the Parasitology Department of Razi Ins. as D. gallinae (Fig. 3, 4). D. gallinae is characterized by long styliform chelicerae, tibia II–IV with one seta and was discriminated from a near member (Ornithonyssus silviarum) (Di-Palma et al. 2012).
