Twenty-nine (5.33%) out of 544 patients of scabies had persistent smbious nodules. Young adults (16-30 years) and children under 15 years constituted 48.27% and 34.48% patients respectively. All but one were males, scrotum (96.55%) and penis (69.0%) were the commonest sites affected, followed by axillaiy region (37.93%) and groins (17.24%). Nodules disappeared in all the patients within 4 months.
