Norwegian, or crusted scabies, is a fulminant and highly infectious form of scabies in which a large number of Sarcoptes scabiei mites infest the epidermis. This is often seen in senile or mentally retarded patients with poor cutaneous sensation, in subjects with severe systemic disease, or immunosuppressed patients. This form of scabies differs from ordinary scabies due to the hyperkeratotic, scaly, and crusted aspect of the lesions. We report a case of Norwegian scabies in 14-year-old boy with Down's syndrome. It is the first reported case in Korea.
