Scabies coexisting with other dermatoses: the importance of recognizing multiple pathologies in resource‐poor settings
Background Skin Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) are a group of ten diseases often co‐endemic in African rural communities and characterized by primary skin involvement. If not diagnosed and treated promptly, they can lead to long‐term disfigurement, disability, stigmatization, and socioeconomic loss. Scabies is a parasitic disease and it was added in 2017 to the World Health Organization's (WHO) list of NTDs. Skin NTDs comorbidities differ according to the local diseases burden and are associated to other poverty‐related illnesses.
