AbstractTwenty-five patients with scabies were studied for the evaluation of metronidazole as an oral therapeutic agent. These patients were given 400 mg of metronidazole three times daily for 8 days. Good to excellent results were observed in 6 (27.27%) patients, 8 (36.36%) patients showed a fair response and no response was observed in 8 patients (36.36%). The significance of these results are discussed.
