Morgellons disease is a new emerging disease that is still controversial and believed to be, by some practitioners, as nothing more than delusional parasitosis. The Center for Disease Control has recently launched an epidemiological investigation into this disease due to the increased number of reports. A first case is reported of an oral lesion and symptoms consistent with Morgellons disease. The nature of the characteristic fibers associated with the intraoral lesion is investigated. Research has started at a number of institutions to elucidate the nature of this emerging disease.
This could be important? See the link HERE, unfortunately the article must be purchased. There’s snake oil on both sides of the isle it appears.
Nevermind, this was the conclusion:
Investigation reveals that these fibers are synthetic and possibly implanted into the tissues by the patient. This patient did not report any of the other symptoms associated with the Morgellons disease listed above other than itching and irritation at the lesional site. This supports the commonly held belief that most of these cases of Morgellons disease are nothing more than delusional parasitosis and should be treated as such. A correct diagnosis must be rendered before an accepted treatment can be expected to yield some results and alleviate symptoms. In this case, the findings support a diagnosis of delusional parasitosis due to evidence supporting the fact that the fibers are synthetic and must have been introduced into the lesion by the patient.
