Morgellons Disease Pictures and Story

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced today that it is launching a study to learn about an unexplained condition that causes people to feel as if they have foreign substances growing from their bodies.

People with the condition, referred to as Morgellons disease, say they have fibers and other inorganic material growing out of their skin.

“We earnestly want to learn more about this unexplained illness, which affects the lives of those who suffer from it,” said Dr. Michele Pearson, principal investigator leading the study for the CDC, in a press release. “Those who suffer have questions, and we want to help them.”

“We have a team of epidemiologists, laboratorians and pathologists to carry out the study,” Pearson said.

The study will be conducted in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California Division of Research. For more information, CLICK HERE to visit the CDC’s Unexplained Dermopathy Web site.

In 2006, a number of Morgellons sufferers told ABC News in interviews that when they consulted doctors, they received diagnoses they called wrong or dismissive. Brandi Koch, the wife of former Major League Baseball player Billy Koch, said that she felt as if she were living in a horror movie, claiming she had colored fibers coming out of her skin.

Koch, of Clearwater Beach, Fla., said that her life was good until one day in the shower when she noticed something strange — tiny fibers running through her skin.

“The fibers look like hair, and they’re different colors,” Koch said.

Koch said she knows that what she experienced “sounds crazy,” but it’s true. “If I had a family member call me up and say, ‘I have this stuff,’ I’d say, ‘I’m sending a straitjacket over. You need some help,'” she said.

Anne Dill described a similar condition. Looking at Dill’s life in Florida, she seemed to be living the American dream — her three daughters excelled in sports and were straight-A students.

But life in the Dill household was far from idyllic. Anne’s 40-year-old husband, Tom, died in January 2006, and she believes his death was due to a contagious illness that has infected her entire family.

Dill described her family’s skin: “There’s this fibrous material. It’s in layers.” Dill said the skin on their hands was particularly bad, very swollen and itchy, and said it felt as if bugs were crawling underneath the skin.

Consulting Doctors

Dr. Greg Smith of Gainesville, Ga., has been a pediatrician for the past 30 years. He claimed that a fiber was coming out of his big toe, and he had video footage to prove it.

“It felt like somebody stuck a pin in my toe and wiggled it, and it just continued to hurt,” Smith told ABC News in 2006.

He said he never thought he had bugs. “I’ve certainly had those crawling sensations, and the fibers which come out of the skin are really bizarre, and really odd.”

Smith was handed over to a hospital psychiatrist when he went to the emergency room complaining of a fiber in his eye. He admits that he, too, would be skeptical if a patient came to him with the same story.

“I would wonder if they’d taken their medicine that day. It makes no sense. It’s totally bizarre. It’s something that — just telling the story is so outlandish on the face of it — that no one would believe it,” Smith said. Dill’s doctor told her to stop scratching, even though many of her sores were in places she could not reach.

Koch went to the Mayo Clinic, where doctors didn’t believe that the fibers she’d brought them had grown from her body.

“I saw the infectious disease doctor, and I showed him some samples that I had and he snickered,” she said. “I can’t go through another doctor blowing me off or looking at me like I’m crazy. I know I’m not.”

Dr. Vincent DeLeo, chief of dermatology at New York’s St. Lukes-Roosevelt Medical Center, weighed in on what he’d say to someone who came to him with this condition. “I don’t think this is any different than many patients I’ve seen who have excoriations and believe that there is something in their skin causing this,” he told ABC News in 2006.

DeLeo said the open lesions were most likely a result of scratching the skin.

Relying on Your Own Research

But biologist Mary Leitao refused to accept the medical skepticism surrounding Morgellons.

Leitao’s son, Drew, was just 2 years old when Leitao noticed an odd sore on his lip that would not heal.

“He very simply said ‘bugs,’ and he pointed to his lips,” said Leitao.

Leitao never expected to find herself at the center of a medical storm. But when her son complained about the strange sore, the biologist, who once ran the electron microscope at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, did what any scientist would do. She took a closer look.

“What I saw were bundles of fibers, *** of fibers,” Leitao says. “There was red and blue.” Even stranger, they glowed under ultraviolet light.

Armed with research, Leitao took her son to a doctor at one of the country’s leading hospitals. He dismissed her tale of fibers and wrote to her pediatrician, saying that her son needed Vaseline for his lips and that his mother needed a thorough psychiatric evaluation.

Undaunted, Leitao began poring through medical literature looking for clues. What she discovered was a 17th-century reference to a strange disease with “harsh hairs” called “Morgellons.”

She named the strange fibers Morgellons disease and put the information on a Web site, Morgellons.org. At the time of her interview in 2006, more than 4,500 people had contacted Leitao, claiming they had Morgellons-type symptoms. The name stuck, and the disease was featured on the television show “ER.”

But do these fibers grow from inside the body, as Morgellons patients believe, or do they come from the external environment — a kind of lint — as the medical skeptics say?

Searching for an Answer

Forensic scientist Ron Pogue at the Tulsa Police Crime Lab in Oklahoma checked a Morgellons sample against known fibers in the FBI’s national database. “No, no match at all. So this is some strange stuff,” Pogue said in 2006. He thought the skeptics were wrong. “This isn’t lint. This is not a commercial fiber. It’s not.”

The lab’s director, Mark Boese, said the fibers are “consistent with something that the body may be producing.” He added that, “These fibers cannot be manmade and do not come from a plant. This could be a byproduct of a biological organism.”

Dill said she looks at pictures of her family and finds them unrecognizable. “My kids have to see not only their dad but their mom disintegrating, and that’s gotta be really scary.”

While they wait for evidence that they hope will convince the medical community to take them seriously, some Morgellon’s sufferers wear pink bracelets that say, simply, “Fortitude.”

  1. Apparently, they did not like my previous post since they have attacked me four times with bugs and inserted new antennae’s. The bugs are present along the freeways, in the mountains, rural areas and cities throughout the state of Virginia and possibly other states.
    A person targeted cannot escape. Even if one manages to get out their usual location, a short walk or drive will result in the bugs finding and identifying the target. They have “bugs” and “bees” that fly in front of the target’s eyes for many seconds, up and down and sidewise, apparently doing a retinal scan for target identification. (So obvious!) Once located, thousands more bugs are sent to the target to attack and torture.
    Look for these bugs with infrared technology in drainage ditches, sewers, creeks, rivers and other bodies of water. Some “bugs” also identify the target by scent-I have seen them approach me and “sniff” before attacking.
    One expert has proclaimed nanotech pollution a far more dangerous environmental disaster than asbestos, DDT and many others combined. Our government has done virtually nothing to regulate nanotech and it is present in products for human use (such as cosmetics) without labeling.
    We, the taxpayers, are footing the bill to enslave US citizens under the guise of homeland security. Targets are often environmentalists, political dissenters or reporters.
    The effects on humans and animals can be very debilitating or fatal. I am a nurse practitioner with a masters in science and have noted the adverse effects firsthand.
    These idiots probably advertise their “intelligence collection” services to potential customers, but they are anything but covert. Intelligence collection paid/contracted for by/for the US government must be done by the real experts-the CIA, not a group of bullies willing to enslave and torture innocent American citizens for political gain.

  2. Bugs sent by GPS
    Tit for tat. I will not let up until they stop! Stay tuned. As long as I am alive and able I will continue to reveal what these corporate w****** are doing to American citizens.
    Bugs sent by GPS. I watched sewer spiders jump to where I was standing moments before. Within seconds, they scattered toward my new location. Bugs, sometimes by the thousands, are sent to wherever I am-in the car, the neighborhood or shopping center.
    They are committing war crimes such as torture and deprivation of food and water by contamination. I am frequently dehydrated, hypoglycemic and hyponatremic (low sodium) due to the above. Consumption of contaminated food causes vomiting. Previously, high-voltage power lines shocked me while driving beneath them in my vehicle. I did self-CPR more times than I can remember.
    Whoever is involved is sadistic, vicious and has no respect for human or animal rights. They frequently attack my pets and me and have nearly caused us to die.
    Who is doing this? I suspect Dick Cheney’s Halliburton subsidiary formerly Brown and Root that later became Kellogg, Brown and Root or KBR. According to author Jeremy Scahill (Blackwater), there were allegations that KBR engaged in human rights abuses including human trafficking.

  3. Whoops, meant to say ACLS instead of ACLU.

  4. Antennae “bugs”
    Another torture tactic they are using is to send antennae darts and implant them into the skin. I have so many darts my body is more magnetic than normal. Later, they use electricity from a nearby source (i.e. overhead light fixture) and charge the body to attempt electrocution or heart arrhythmia and make a fatality appeared to be an MI or other heart problem.
    They have actually stopped my heart. Being a former ER and critical care nurse with ACLU experience, I did self-CPR to restart my heart. As soon as the feeling of fainting begins, start vigorous coughing about 60 times a minute and this can suffice to circulate the blood until a normal rhythm returns.
    These people are sadistic and have no boundaries in what they are willing to do to people.
    Google bug attacks on humans and you will get quite a few hits. Reporters are targets. Big surprise since they want to control information and put a lid on free speech that is unflattering to them.

  5. see previous comments. Try UV light bulb in a regular lamp anddirect to painful area.

  6. sorry, won’t paste

  7. Bug Attacks
    I have had Morgi for about 5 years. Recently they started new attacks with fabricated bugs and other shapes using nano tech and manufactured bugs. I have been attacked by thousands at a time and the pain is horrific.
    They have entered my ear and perforated my TM, entered my urethra/urinary tract and caused me to have bloody urine and pain on many occasions. They have entered every orifice in my body to torture and torment me.
    I have acquired numerous new infections and wounds. Lately, they obviously implanted me with an infrared chip so that I can see them coming (psychological torture) in the shape of snakes, electric eels, black worm like creatures, salamanders, alligators, etc. Sounds crazy I know, but the nano-tech war has started.
    They have polluted the creeks and sewers and every time I walk past the local creek, the bugs come toward me and attack.
    Recently I heard a radio station in central Virginia report that bugs by the thousands lined the sky and attacked the patrons at a local restaurant. Obviously, they (neo-Nazis?) are trying to put the owner out of business by attacking his customers and making them afraid to return. The station is in the Fredericksburg area: 95.9.
    Light can kill or control the bugs, including sunlight, UV, Halogen, flashlight, AC house lights directed to the affected areas. Recently, when nothing else worked, I used a crystal to refract the light into different wavelengths to remove a nano-snake from my leg.
    Some lights accelerate the “bug” activity and others will “kill” it I expect to be dead any day now. Below is a picture of one of the many infections they have caused.
    I mentioned previously that my problems began in 2004 with George W. Bush when I reported illegal activity by his administration. I wonder if Jeb’s candidacy has anything to do with the new attacks.
    Below, a possible picture of a nano snake taken with an infrared camera.

  9. I have been suffering with morgellons for 3 years now. This is the most mental & physical Paine you couldnt ever imagine. My body is no longer mine. I do not recognize myself when I look in the mirror. I just want to go to heaven and get out of this hell.

  10. “Brazilian researcher Dr. Geraldo Deffune G. de Oliveira, an Agronomical Engineer and member of the Brazilian Association of Biodynamic Agriculture, [who] claims that the disease does exist, the skin lesions do contain fibers”

    “The research carried out points towards Agrobacterium tumefasciens, an organism which has been manipulated through genetic engineering and one which creates TI (Tumour-Inducing) Plasmids, structures which carry or insert transgenic materials. What may have happened is that these agrobacteria, present in all soils and which easily acquire nucleic acids, have used this propensity to pick up genes and their mutants which can be pathogenic to human beings. Among these new acquisitions may be the viral promotors used in transgenic technology, which pass from the millions of tonnes of transgenic residue left on the soil whereupon they are absorbed by these agrobacteria.”

    “Dr. Vitali Citovsky from the State University of New York, whose work “Contribution of Agrobacterium to Morgellons Disease” (*) confirms the fears. The main areas of incidence in the USA are tracked down to Florida, Texas and California.”
