Morgellons Disease

Morgellons disease is a chronic skin disease known to be associated with Lyme disease.

Here is a photo of red fibres from a recent patient at x500 microscopy.

 

In November 2011 Dr Mayne gave a talk on the condition at the annual meeting of the Cardiff University
Dermatology Continuing Professional Development Society on the proposed keratin formation of Morgellons fibres based upon his own findings including electron microscopy of a fibre, and also a recently published article on this matter that compares the disease to Bovine Digital dermatitis which is known and documented to be caused by spirochaetal infection. The article is available at http://www.dovepress.com/articles.php?article_id=8655

In April 2012 he gave an expanded version of the above talk at the annual conference of the Charles Holman Foundation. He now serves as an adviser to the foundation.

In April 2013 he gave two talks at the annual conference of the Charles Holman Foundation based on work about to be published. That research article is now available at:

We now have evidence that Morgellons is a spirochaetal skin disease and it looks likely that is all due to lyme disease

Morgellons disease has been labelled in the past as dermatitis artefacta and also delusional parasitosis. There are other causes of these skin conditions. However, in those people with Morgellons, there has been a failure by dermatologists and general practitioners to examine the skin with at least x60 microscopy to detect the filaments, and also a failure to detect cranial nerve symptoms, signs and abnormalities that are found in Lyme disease. In Australia Lyme disease is almost entirely a neurological condition as it is in Asia and Europe.

The death of Delusions of Parasitosis. After a very long haul a new paper has just been published proving beyond doubt now that Morgellons fibres are keratin in nature and not delusions viz:
