Core Tip Crab lice (Phthirus pubis) infestation of the eyelids and lashes (phthiriasis palpebrarum), despite manifesting eyelid pain and itching, is easy to miss, even for ophthalmologists, as the lice and nits are translucent. For the case presented here, a light microscope revealed the features of crab lice and nits in unilateral eyelashes and adjacent eyelids. Complete removal of the affected eyelashes, by trimming or plucking, followed by a single povidone-iodine rinse appears to be a simple, safe and effective method of treatment.
