Sebotropic mites have been implicated in the pathogenesis of several dermatoses in humans. A 46 year old male diabetic patient presented with painful,erythematous,papular,rosacea-like eruptions over bilateral cheeks and a rhinophyma of the nasal tip.The lesions were persistent for two years,with negative slit skin smears and unresponsive to treatment attempts. A skin biopsy revealed demodex mite with superadded dermatophyte infection.This case is a testament to the view that demodex mites are pathogen etic in certain circumstances.
