Scabies is one of the most common skin infestations and the diagnosis is mostly based on clinical presentation and suggestive history. A confirmatory diagnosis is highly desirable as the treatment requires strict compliance from the patient as well as close contacts. Existing diagnostic methods are time consuming and not very sensitive. This article describes the use of dermoscopy to facilitate the in-vivo diagnosis of this infestation.

Keywords: Dermoscopy, Scabies, Entomodermoscopy.
