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, 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. Hi, my story starts with adult acne which was infected with morgellons and I have now been suffering for nearly two years with no help from doctors. I have relied on my own observations, research, and trial and error ! I have been close to suicide many times !
    But recently I have found a routine that helps to clear the lesions which I now find filled with white or clear pulp’s (not sure what to call them)
    They do not heal without intervention and washing alone will not clear them.
    They must be soaked to be easily plucked from skin, I use a pain relieving cream as it is painful removing them, you will find that once soaked the main pulps will show themselves and are easier to remove then I wash the area and cover with ‘clearasil’ advantage spot gel, the active ingredient that seems to help is ‘saylic acid’ also morgellons will reinfect any wound that is open so this keeps the area covered. Hope this helps ! Love Tanya

  2. Please look into “scabies”. Most dr’s don’t recocnize scabies symptoms unless they are classic bites in the webs of fingers and wrists.

    These pictures look all too familiar. The picture where something is coming out of the wound,the flake looking thing) is a dead scabie making its way out like a splinter.

    Scabies hairs will remain in the skin=fibers, the skin has a hard time expelling them and sometimes they leave a layer under the skin… They are luminescent because of white, just like our teeth or other things that glow under black light.

    Scabies can have bacteria or fungus that can overtake the body causing liver damage.

    These pictures are all too familiar, I’m not saying it’s not Morgellons but please go to a scabies expert .

  3. Well, I’m still alive-barely. The cavalry arrived and they are fabulous as long as simple breakthrough pain management isn’t required to make another minute or hour go by. Here is a top ten list they could be following:

    Top Ten Indications “the Club’ Is Providing U.S. Prisioners’ Breakthrough Pain Management

    1. They spend billions of dollars only to have you blow your own brains out

    2. Only one hospital in the US does a worse job- the VA

    3. Terminal cancer patients live longer-much, much longer

    4. Ivy league management physicians are experts at torture-all from reading about it

    5. Razors, ropes and loaded guns are a prisoners’ best friend

    6. You pray to God daily, for death and death and death

    7. Marijuana pain management is illegal and prohibited and …

    8. The Club believes narcotics is or sissies

    9. Tortured prisoners who commit suicide are weak and we are better off without them

    10. The only worse thing than being a prisoner under their protection-surviving


  4. Hello everyone, it’s my first pay a quick visit at this site, and paragraph is in fact fruitful in favor of me, keep up posting these content.

  5. Well, nearly constant attacks since my last posting. These idiots are anything but covert. I know every time they send me ANYTHING. Real amateurs in the intelligence arena.
    They have damaged my vision and caused dozens of floaters in both eyes by putting nano-bugs in my eyes. They have nearly caused me to have retinal detachments, which can lead to blindness. A close relative and frequent visitor to my home just had surgery on both eyes for retinal detachments. Perhaps she picked up the bugs here…
    I wonder if my video on u-Tube has anything to do with me being their target. Search key words: predator drone home video and see what Bush/Cheney has been doing to innocent American citizens.

  6. Narcotics for Morgellons and itching
    I developed cellulites from one of the wounds they gave me. The pain was so severe, I needed narcotics. I was astonished that it took away the itching associated with Morgellons. Never have I seen narcotics prescribed for itching, but it was almost a miracle how it controlled my s/s.
    Tolerance quickly develops with narcotics so I would recommend that it only be taken at night for sleep (under a practitioner’s care of course) and for exacerbations. If taken continuously around the clock, they do not work as well. Percocet or its generic causes less nausea then some of the other narcotics, but it requires a written Rx each month and that is a major hassle.

  7. Lethal meds
    They are trying to kill me with a lethal dose of what I believe is a narcotic. The reaction is not unlike a heroin overdose, without the high. I suddenly throw up, get sleepy and then notice that my respirations become abnormally shallow. Within minutes, I lose my respiratory drive completely and have to remember to breathe until the “medication” wears off.
    Maybe they will soon get lucky since very little skill is involved. These assassins are amateurs compared to real pros. Almost 12 years since the attacks began and I am still alive. If they were real men, they would come in person instead of sending manmade bugs and lethal medications. I have no respect for them or their methods.
