Mites in the genus Chorioptes cause a mild form of skin disease in both domestic and wild ruminants. In July 2006, dermatitis characterized by alopecia, marked lichenification, accumulation of crust, and fissuring was recognized in 14 out of 200 Holstein dairy cattle raised in the cattle farm of the National Institute of Animal Science in Cheonan, Republic of Korea. Skin lesions were distributed mainly over the tail base, and sacral and perineal regions. Microscopic examinations of skin… Expand
Acaricidal activity of petroleum ether extracts from Eupatorium adenophorum against the ectoparasitic cattle mite, Chorioptes texanus
Results indicated that E. adenophorum contains novel potential acaricidal compounds that can effectively control mites in livestock. Expand
The role of Chorioptic mange infestation in aggravating the infection rates of Staphylococcal dermatitis and Edematous skin disease in Egyptian buffaloes
Chorioptes mange is a skin disease affects both domestic and wild ruminants. A total of 341 Egyptian buffaloes, aged from 2 to 10 years old were examined clinically to determine incidence rate,Expand
Chorioptes mites: re‐evaluation of species integrity
This analysis supports the validity of C. bovis and C. texanus as morphologically distinct, and supports the existence of a proposed third species of Chorioptes, and suggests that the mites described by Sweatman in his classic 1958 description of C., texanus, which were obtained from the ears of semi‐domesticated reindeer are likely to have been specimens of this as yet unnamed species.

Integrated Bayesian species delimitation and morphological diagnostics of chorioptic mange mites (Acariformes: Psoroptidae: Chorioptes)
The external morphology of adult and immature stages of mange mites of the genus Chorioptes was investigated with the aid of light and scanning electron microscopy. A molecular phylogeny of thisExpand
Transcriptome-based analysis of putative allergens of Chorioptes texanus
The present transcriptome data provide a useful basis for understanding the host-parasite interaction and molecular biology of the C. texanus mite and offers opportunities for the development of new diagnostic, prevention and treatment methods. Expand
Use of a mechanical brush by dairy cows with chorioptic mange
Assessment of changes in dairy cow motivation to use a brush in relation to signs of mange, and before and after the application of an anti-parasitic drug, indicates that brush use in mange-affected cows decreases after initial usage, and that regardless of the severity of mane, access to a grooming device is a valuable resource for dairy cows.

Decrease of Metagonimus yokogawai endemicity along the Tamjin River basin.
The Tamjin River which flows from Jangheung-gun via Gangjin-gun to the South Sea was reported to be a highly endemic area of Metagonimus yokogawai infection in 1977 and 1985, and the individual worm burdens appeared to have decreased remarkably, although the prevalence did not decrease at all.
