Figure 3: Dermoscopic images of adult lice infesting humans: (a) Ex-vivo trichovideoscopic appearance of multiple mature head lice isolated from the patient's scalp that had heavy infestation. A maturing nymph can be seen (red arrow), which is relatively translucent compared to mature lice [Escope videodermoscope, polarized, 10×]. (b) Pubic region of an adult Indian patient showing a 'miniature-crab'-like light greyish-brown louse with six legs, clutching onto the firmly grasped pubic hair shafts with its foreleg-claws. [Escope videodermoscope, polarized, 10×]
