Sažetak

 

Krevetne stenice su ektoparaziti ljudi, pilića, slepih miševa i povremeno domaćih životinja. Parazitiraju hraneći se krvlju. Aktivne su noću kada izlaze iz svojih skoloništa u krevetu ili drugom nameštaju.  Kod ljudi na mestu uboda se pojavljuje lokalna reakcija praćena svrabom, posledičnim češanjem se razvijaju ekskorijacije, a naknadno formiraju kruste. Pacijentkinja stara 68 godina javlja se u Službu za prevenciju besnila i drugih zaraznih bolesti Pasterovog zavoda Novi Sad zbog uboda na koži koji jako svrbe. Objektivnim pregledom utvrđujemo da bi se moglo raditi o ujedu insekata. Nakon determinacije insekta koji nam je pacijentkinja dostavila narednog dana utvrđeno je da se radi o krevetnoj stenici (Cimex lectularius, Linaeus, 1758). Tretman pacijenata ujedenih od strane stenica sastoji se u ublažavanju svraba lokalnim kortikosteroidima i oralnim antihistaminicima, uz prevenciju sekundarne bakterijske infekcije.

 

 

Ključne reči:

krevetne stenice; infestacija; svrab; Cimex lectularius.

 

 

 

Abstract

 

Bed bugs are ectoparasites of people, chickens, bats and occasionally the domestic animals and feed by the host’s blood. They are nocturnal and come out of their shelter in bed or other furniture. In humans, the place of the bite shows the local reaction that is followed by itching and forming of the crust. 68-years-old female patient reports at the Pasteur Institute for emerging bite-like wounds on the skin followed by strong itching. Physical examination of patient revealed that the causative agent could be insect. After determination of the insects delivered by the patient next day, organism was identified as Cimex lectularius, Linaeus, 1758 - bed bug. The treatment of the patient who are bitten by the bed bugs consist of lowering of itching by local corticosteroids and oral antihistamines and the prevention of the secondary bacterial infection.

 

 

Key words:

bed bugs; itching; Cimex lectularius.
