This is an interesting paper because Morgellons disease is an emerging clinical entity that is usually unknown for the medical practitioner and characterized by the presence of microscopic filaments (in a floral-like formation) associated with slow-healing cutaneous lesions and multisystem illness. The authors consider this disease to be similar to bovine digital dermatitis, which responds to antibiotics and anti-parasitic drugs. This disease has been misdiagnosed as delusional parasitosis, but the patients and cattle included in related studies have demonstrated sero-reactivity to Borrelia burgdorferi antigens and cultures supporting a spirochetal etiology.
