Answer to Case 704

Answer to the Parasite Case of the Week 704: Sarcoptes scabiei mite and eggs. This case nicely demonstrates several key diagnostic features, including the presence of a (moving!) nymph, eggs containing developing nymphs, and histologic sections of mites and eggs within the epidermis. Thanks again to Harsha for sharing this outstanding case.
