Background: I our study we strictly included patients who had obvious signs and symptoms of human scabies.
Methods: In this particular skin infection we provided more detailed analyses of epidemiology and treatment, since scabies requires numerous other logistic tasks in order to achieve fully recovery and prevent re-infection.
Results: Vast majority of patients, who were diagnosed and treated for ectoparasites, were adults 18-year-old and more (71%, n=196/276).
Conclusion: Scabies is a serious public health problem and the consequence of migration and the rise in resistance to Permetrin and Ivermectin should be monitored
Key words: scabies, migrant health.
