Animal Scabies Affecting Man

Arch Dermatol. 1965;91(1):54-55. doi:10.1001/archderm.1965.01600070060007

This is a report of nine cases of canine scabies transferred to humans. Only four cases were actually seen by me, but descriptions of the other five cases left little doubt that these were also animal scabies transmitted by a litter of miniature Schnauzer pups which were promptly treated, thus ending a small but interesting epidemic.
