Morgellons

Overview

Type of disease: Rare conditions

Morgellons Disease (MD) is a multi-system condition characterized by novel skin manifestations and insidious neurological and other systemic symptoms. The distinguishing characteristic of MD is the presence of microscopic subcutaneous fibers sometimes referred to as filaments within the skin. Lighted microscopy (60x min) enables visualization of these unusual fibers, often colored red, blue, white or clear, embedded in open skin lesions as well as their presence beneath completely intact skin.
