dua cebeci, seide karasel.

Abstract
Crusty scabies or Norwegian scabies is a highly contagious type of scab that is characterized by intense infestation by Sarcoptes scabiei in the skin and widespread, crusty, hyperkeratotic papules,plaques and nodules. The infection can be missed due to its atypical appearance. Patients with cognitive impairment or an immunodeficiency disorder (including immunosuppressive therapy) are prone to developing crusty scabies. Although the relationship between Down syndrome and crusted scabies is explained as an abesence of immune system its still not fully understood. In this we report a 28-month-old girl with Down syndrome who presented with crusted scabies.

Key words: crusted scabies, cognitive impairment, Down syndrome
