Culicosis

definition

squito bites produce pruritic lesions ranging from small erythematous papules with only transient discomfort to urticarial wheals or blisters. Due to pruritus and excoriation, mosquito bites may result in secondary eczematization and impetiginisation. Mosquitoes are vectors of many important diseases including malaria, encephalitis and yellow fever.
