The nature, pathogenesis and evolution of pruritical papules of 136 patients with scabies was studied.The papules appear in the course of the scabies and remain for weeks and months after its cure. Most often they were present in cases of children and young people. In the cases of young papules, scabious burrows were observed in which scabious elements were proved to occur microscopically. In the phase of regression, the papules turn into brown pigmented macules which continue to itch. The dominant and most constant histological finding is that of small cell infiltrates in all parts of the corium. They consist mostly of lymphocytes and eosinophils. The papules appear to be due to absorption of the dilapidated products of parasitic excrements which, through the widened intercellular spaces in the epidermis and the lymph vessels of the papillary body penetrate into the cutis to produce this peculiar reaction.
