Case of the Week 377

Happy Holidays to all of my Creepy Dreadful Wonderful Parasite blog readers!

Here is a fun holiday-themed case: 'Santa' delivering 'gifts.' Who is Santa, and what is in the gifts?

It's secret Santa coming down the hair shaft "this time" to a put a nit under the tree! Itching under the mistletoe! Pthirus santa the pubis

The spirit of Christmas is to share, particularly to the ones close to us. The generous Santa coming down the hair shaft and deposes a gift, not by insured mail, yet assured not to be dislodged. Better than that, this is the kind of gift that keeps on giving, generation after generation till the Brazilian style comes into fashion.
In our close "nit" circle of Parasitologists, there is a very popular question:"What is worse than a lobster on the piano?". The answer:"A crab on the organ".
There you go "have yourself a little Merry Christmas", "Prosperous Ano y Felicidad", "Joyeux Noel et Bonne Annee".

-Crab /Pubic lice / Pediculosis Pubis . Clawed feet for gripping hair
- Louse egg nit laid at base of hair. Distance from hair base to egg position = age of infestation.

Pthirus pubis. In my land, Argentina, its popular name
is "ladilla". Happy New Year.
