BackgroundEpidermal parasitic skin diseases (EPSD) occur in most countries and cause a considerable health and economic burden, particularly in the tropics and subtropics. The aim of this study was to assess and analyse peer-reviewed literature on EPSD in humans. The results of this study serve as an indicator of the extent the scientific community, health authorities, and international health agencies interact with EPSD as a health problem that is commonly associated with poverty and poor… 
Part II - Ectoparasites: Pediculosis and Tungiasis.
Myiasis and Tungiasis
TLDR
Information is summarized regarding two neglected parasitic infestations by arthropods belonging to order Diptera and the order Siphonaptera, causing myiasis and tungiasis, respectively, which are ectoparasitic pathologies affecting mainly the skin but also mucous membranes and organs of humans and animals.
Tungiasis: a highly neglected disease among neglected diseases. Case series from Nduta refugee camp (Tanzania)
TLDR
Seven severe cases of tungiasis in children living in a refugee camp in Tanzania are reported, all of whom were treated with surgical extraction of the fleas because the topical treatment (dimethicone) was not available.
Prevalence of Pediculosis Capitis and Associated Factors among Primary School Children at Kawiley Village North Sulawesi, Indonesia
TLDR
The prevalence of pediulosis capitis is still high amongst school children, in which girls has a higher infestation of pediculus capitis than boys, and mothers’ education level seems to have no correlation with the prevalence.
Tungiasis: a highly neglected disease among neglected diseases. Case series from Nduta refugee camp (Tanzania)
TLDR
Seven severe cases of tungiasis in children living in a refugee camp in Tanzania are reported, all of whom were treated with surgical extraction of the fleas because the topical treatment (dimethicone) was not available.
Bibliometric analysis of global research output on antimicrobial resistance in the environment (2000–2019)
TLDR
Scientific literature on the AMR in the environment has witnessed a steep growth lately with a leading role of China and Chinese institutions.
Comparative efficacy and safety of interventions for treating head lice: a protocol for systematic review and network meta-analysis
TLDR
The evidence generated from this systematic review and meta-analysis is intended for use in evidence-driven treatment of head lice infestations and will be instrumental in informing health professionals, public health practitioners and policy-makers.
The Dominant Factors of High Scabies Incidence In Indralaya Islamic Boarding School Students South Sumatera, Indonesia
TLDR
The significant relationship of residential density, ventilation, and age towards the occurrence of scabies should be further investigated in order to prepare for elimination programs.
The Dominant Factors of Scabies Incidence in Two Islamic Boarding School Students, South Sumatera, Indonesia
TLDR
The relationship between residential density and personal characteristics towards the incidences of scabies among students of boarding school Raudatul Ulum and Mustaqimus Sunnah, South Sumatra and the free variable bearing the most dominant influence towards scabies incidence was the residential density.
ADVANCED NONINVASIVE DIAGNOSTIC METHODS OF PARASITIC SKIN DISEASES
TLDR
The aim of this research was to retrieve up-to-date information about advanced noninvasive diagnostic methods for verification of parasitic skin diseases.

Epidermal parasitic skin diseases: a neglected category of poverty-associated plagues.
TLDR
It is shown that poverty favours the presence of animal reservoirs, ensures ongoing transmission, facilitates atypical methods of spreading infectious agents and increases the chances of exposure, which results in an extraordinarily high prevalence and intensity of infestation of EPSD in resource-poor populations.
Tungiasis: a neglected epidermal parasitic skin disease of marginalized populations—a call for global science and policy
TLDR
A systematic assessment on disease burden is still dearth and deficient and intensive efforts to develop a road map that delivers a clear vision towards zero new infection by designing low-cost prevention and control strategies are urged.
Epidemiology of scabies

  • 2013
TLDR
Scabies remains common across the world, but is such a health issue in the developing world that the suggestion that it be considered a neglected tropical disease is a pertinent one.
Tungiasis (sand flea disease): a parasitic disease with particular challenges for public health
TLDR
Owing to its strong association with poverty, sand flea disease would be an excellent starting point for a community-based fight against rural poverty.
Bibliometric analysis of literature on toxic epidermal necrolysis and Stevens-Johnson syndrome: 1940 – 2015

TLDR
Research publications on SJS and TEN have been increasing since the l940s, with relatively low international collaboration and top cited articles appeared in dermatology and pharmacogenetic journals.
Hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans.
TLDR
The aim of this review was to contribute to a better definition and description of the disease known as HrCLM, one of the leading causes of dermatologic disorders observed in ill returned travelers.
Association between Footwear Use and Neglected Tropical Diseases: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The results show that footwear use was associated with a lower odds of several different NTDs, and access to footwear should be prioritized alongside existing NTD interventions to ensure a lasting reduction of multiple N TDs and to accelerate their control and elimination.
Parasitic skin diseases: health care‐seeking in a slum in north‐east Brazil
TLDR
The results show that tungiasis and pediculosis, and to a lesser extent scabies and CLM, are hyperendemic but neglected by both population and physicians, and that prevalence rates of tung infection and scabies at the PHCC do not reflect the true prevalence of these diseases in the community.
