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

You answered:

D Crusted scabies.

This answer is correct. The patient’s yellow-grey, crusted, scaling lesions are typical for skin lesions observed in patients with crusted scabies (also known as Norwegian scabies). In addition, the skin scraping confirms the diagnosis since it shows a scabies mite, as well as several scabies eggs.
