Özet

Scabies is a common parasitic human infection in infants and children. However, diagnostic pitfalls are frequent in infants, in whom the clinical presentation is usually atypical and different from that in adults. In nodular scabies, lesions may be clinically or histologically misdiagnosed as Langerhans cell histiocytosis, insect bite reaction, non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, lymphoma, or urticaria pigmentosa.
