Abstract

Scabies is skin disease of human and many mammalian hosts caused by the important obligate parasites

Sarcoptes scabiei, lives and reproduces in epidermis ,resulting a significant human and animal morbidity.

The current study aimed to determine the immunological responses in patients infested with scabies who

attended a private clinic in Al-Hussein general hospital in Thi-Qar province. The total white blood cell

count, differential counts (lymphocytes, monocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils), the serum

levels of IL-5 and IL-13 in were evaluated in all patients with scabies and compared with non-infested

healthy individuals as a control group.

The present study showed significant increase on the mean of total WBC in patients infested with scabies

when compared with control (P? 0.05).

A significant differences (P? 0.05) were recorded in the absolute leukocytes counts for patient infested

with scabies when compared with control group except that for monocytes and basophils which were non

significant (P? 0.05) in our study.

The results of study showed significant differences (P? 0.05) in the mean of IL-5 and IL-13 serum levels

for the patient infested with scabies when compared with control.
