This report describes the incidence of scabies in a relatively well-defined population traveling and living in different parts of the world, yet covered by a single medical treatment and reporting system. A number of the hypotheses concerning cyclical increases of scabies are evaluated in light of available information concerning this population, including data on the incidence of gonorrhea and pediculosis.
