Demodectic mange in a tamarin (Saguinus geoffroyi).

Abstract

A young female tamarin (Saguinus geoffroyi) developed erythema, alopecia, and papule formation on the skin of the limbs, tail, and head. Examination of skin scrapings and a biopsy specimen revealed mites identified as Demodex sp. Histologically the mites were found in hair follicles, and they were associated with focal degenerative and inflammatory changes in the skin. Successful treatment included topical application of 1% ronnel solution and rotenone ointment.
