Figure 5: Higher magnification polarized videodermoscopy of scabetic burrows from two Indian children: (a) Appreciate the components of the delta wing jet contrail sign. A schematic diagram of 'jet contrail' can be seen in the inset for morphological comparison. Also appreciate the head, body, tail components of the new anatomo-functional concept called the Mite-Gallery Unit (MGU) proposed to broaden the concept that would consider different albeit related dermoscopic features as additional potential dermocopic clues for diagnosis of scabies with/without the classical clues. (b) In this image that also shows the typical sign as seen in (a), one can also observe the presence of few discreet pigmented structureless areas (white arrows) in the surrounding of the burrow, which is more commonly encountered in scabies patients who are dark-skinned, suggesting simultaneous and/or early development of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
