ID#: 20202
Description: Caption:
From a right lateral view, these red cutaneous lesions, which appeared on this patient’s right buttock and hip regions, represented chigger bite marks, made by the arachnid, Eutrombicula lipovskyana. See PHIL 20201, and 20203, revealing additional views of this patient's infestation. These chigger bites can cause intense itching, and reddish welts on the skin. E. lipovskyana are not known to transmit infectious diseases in the U.S. Their bites, however, can cause subsequent cutaneous infections, when a sufferer scratches the lesions, thereby, initiating trauma to the skin, which in turn, can become infected.
