Case of the Week 196

The following was seen inside a plastic 'ziplock' style bag sent in for parasite identification. The source was "skin scrapings." Thankfully, the bag was handled with care and not opened prior to being examined under the dissecting microscope. The appendages of these objects were still moving. Interestingly, there was no obvious skin flakes in the bag.
