INTRODUCTION:

Morgellons,a condition characterized by boils,skin eruptions, redness, pain, itching, stinging, crawling sensation,mental deficits, spongy like deposit on the skin,etc being studied by us with the term Neurotoxic spongy fibrous conditions.

 

BEING MYTH:

Morgellon assumed to be incurable,undiagonizable and a psychosomatic disorder specified   Delusional Parasitosis on query,?.

 

BEING RARE:

Shows spongy like Fibrous deposits / sprouts from the body that are not  medically logical & has no known scientific data,publication,policy or treatment regimen at the moment .

 

BEING FACT:

The boils,eruptive skin, ulcers,the stinging,crawling sensations,mental deficits and weakness are known diagnostics, pathologies, signs and symptoms and are medically treatable.

PROSPECTIVE  REFLECTION:

RELATING  THE AFFINITY OF FUNGUS GNAT  (ARACHNOCAMPA LUMINOSA) WITH THIS CONDITION IS A WORTHY QUEST TO SCOPE ????

 

 OPINION:

 Since there is a  defined critical number of Americans suffering from this condition and some others in foreign countries, we suggest a  peer reviewing scientific grant and research study commission to independently  study this.

 

   DISCUSSION:

 From our experience, not all the patients are morgellons or delusional parasitosis.Some are truly presenting signs and symptoms distinctively unknown in medicine or science and therefore need to be studied  unbiasedly & peer reviewed. We  termed  it  Neurotoxic Spongy Fibrous Syndrome due to its presentations and we affirm that it is communicable & needs cautions.

 

CONCLUSION:

We are pleading for awareness,recognition,financial  grant or other nonprofit supports to  study the biology,epidemiology,psychology,pathophysiology,pharmacology ,cure and preventive measures to this condition.
