OSUNA MARCO, Marta Pilar et al. Pediculosis capitis, is it really an insignificant disease?. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.70, pp.81-84. ISSN 1139-7632.

Pediculosis capitis is the most common paediatric infestation. Generally, it is considered a minor infestation, and scientific literature rarely reports possible relevant clinical complications. Our aim is to present the case of an adolescent with asthenia, moderate anaemia, significant cervical lymphadenopathy and eosinophilia, lately discovered to be due to this parasite.

Keywords : Lice infestations; Anaemia; Lymphadenopathy; Eosinophilia.
