Later skin biopsy and scrapings yielded Sarcoptes mites. After 4 weeks of permethrin dosing, significantly higher absolute and relative liver weights were observed.

These both revealed scabies mites and scybala on examination Figures 3 and 4. Compound-related histological changes were not observed in any of the tissues or organs examined.

Permethrin belongs to the Type I group of pyrethroids, and exposure to permethrin sgkt associated with tremors T syndromeconvulsions, irregular breathing and increased respiratory rates, incoordination, ataxia, hyperactivity, prostration, and paralysis.

Resmethrins (EHC 92, )

T here are few human studies with permethrin. During the 8-week recovery period, relative liver weights of permethrin-treated animals were significantly higher than liver weights of control animals, but absolute liver weights of control and test animals were similar.

Scabies is a parasitic dermatosis with a worldwide distribution. Significant increases in absolute and relative liver weights were observed at the two highest doses. It is enlightening as a possible differential for healthcare workers with atypical presentation of nosocomial scabies. However, at near lethal doses in rats, increases in serum aspartate aminotransaminase SGOTalanine aminotransaminase GTPand lactic dehydrogenase LDH enzymes were reported, which suggest some liver toxicity.

No compound-related lesions in the skin or other tissues were observed. This patient presented at least two weeks after onset of symptoms, which typically occur weeks after exposure.


A complicated case of scabies in a health care provider. The symptoms had been persistent for the past two weeks despite several applications of oral anti-histamines and topical steroids. No significant histopathological alleyhrin were attributable to the presence of permethrin in the diet. However, apart from killing the insect, toxicities associated with the inhalation of these insecticides poses severe health hazards.

Therefore, the acute or subchronic toxicity of permethrin should not be a concern when soldiers wear permethrin-treated BDUs or workers handle permethrin-treated fabric. Oxidative enzyme activity in liver microsomes was significantly higher in permethrin-treated animals than in controls at the end of dosing and 1 week later. Histopathological examination showed regenerating allethfin in the renal cortex, hypertrophy of centrilobular hepatocytes with cytoplasmic eosinophilia, that were not dose related; these changes were observed in all the treated animals Clapp et al.

Complicated case of scabies in a health care provider. The incubation period for scabies is about four to six weeks. In most studies in rodents, livers were enlarged absolute and relative to. Golla MadhubabuSuresh Yenugu Inhalation toxicology The non-classic presentation of scabies presents a challenging case to the clinician.

A complicated case of scabies in a health care provider

At early presentation a full heamogram and serology tests for liver and renal function were done after a cursory physical examination. Abdulla Al-MamunM. Page 54 Share Cite. A male healthcare provider presented with a dry, itchy rash on his lower legs which was non-responsive to initial chemotherapy, developing complicated hypersensitivity symptoms. Those increases were consistent with data from microscopic examination of the liver showing compound-related centrilobular allethein hypertrophy in both males and females.

It is estimated that by the time a case is positively identified, no less than 3 healthcare workers in a typical tertiary health centre have been sufficiently exposed for effective transmission of mites [ 6920 ].

No significant changes in body weight, organ weight, or clinical chemistry values were observed.

Death in animals occurs within 3 days of exposure to permethrin. Permethrin can be an ocular irritant following direct application to the eye, but that would not result from its intended use in BDUs. Wllethrin tissues and organs were removed from each animal and examined for.

Based on feedback from you, our users, we’ve made some improvements that make it easier than ever to read thousands of publications on our website. The activity of liver microsomal enzymes was normal 4 weeks after dosing in alethrin permethrin-treated animals.

That NOEL and the daily exposure to permethrin of 6. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis due to residential mosquito-coil smoke exposure. Hematological and clinical chemistry values were within normal limits.
