AbstractFrom the face of each of 9 patients having rosacea-like lesions the follicle mites identified as Demodex folliculorum (DF) (Simon) were in varying numbers. In our control cases no mites were demonstrated from similar sites. Treatment with one percent lindane (Cosmascab lotion-Napha) applied locally for seven consecutive days improved the condition in all patients.
