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

You answered:

B Seborrheic dermatitis.

This answer is incorrect. Patients with seborrheic dermatitis can develop scaling lesions, but the body distribution is not consistent with this disorder. In addition, seborrheic dermatitis would not explain the findings from the skin scraping.

Choose another answer:

A Psoriasis with secondary lice infestation.
C Secondary syphilis.
D Crusted scabies.
