Case 1: A 43-Year-Old with a Persistent Skin Rash

You answered:

A Psoriasis with secondary lice infestation.

This answer is incorrect. Although the patient’s cutaneous lesions resemble psoriasis, the distribution is not consistent with psoriasis. In addition, the organism visible on the skin scraping is not a louse.

Choose another answer:

B Seborrheic dermatitis.
C Secondary syphilis.
D Crusted scabies.
