1/4. Human infestation by Ophionyssus natricis snake mite.

    A family presented with a papular vesiculo-bullous eruption of the skin, found to be caused by the snake mite, Ophionyssus natricis (Cervais, 1844). A pet python was the primary host. Treatment of the animal and its environment led to clearance of the human skin lesions.

2/4. An outbreak of rat mite dermatitis in an animal research facility.

    We describe an outbreak of rat mite dermatitis that affected 15 employees of an animal research facility. Cases of rat mite dermatitis are infrequently reported, and outbreaks are reported even less. Our case series demonstrates that in contrast to most prior outbreaks, rat mite dermatitis may occur even in modern, well-maintained physical surroundings and thus remains a relevant diagnosis today.

3/4. Tropical rat mite dermatitis. Report of six cases and review of mite infestations.

    Six cases of tropical rat mite (Ornithonyssus bacoti) dermatitis are presented. The patients experienced papular urticaria, and mites were found on and identified in several of the patients. The presence of rodents in or around the home was confirmed in most cases. The role of other parasitic mites found on bats, birds, and snakes is reviewed. The importance of obtaining a history of rodent activity or exposure to other animals is emphasized when considering the cause of arthropod bites.

4/4. Cheyletiella dermatitis. A mite infestation of rabbit, cat, dog, and man.

    Two patients with recurrent, intensely pruritic, grouped red papules on the chest, abdomen, and thighs were examined and found to have Cheyletiella dermatitis. Cheyletiella, a nonburrowing species of mite, was isolated from fur brushings of the household pets, including one dog and two cats. Treatment of the affected pets resulted in complete resolution of symptoms and signs in both animals and patients. This appears to be the third instance of human Cheyletiella dermatitis recorded in north america.
