¤ Maladie des Morgellons : un long article du Guardian (7 mai 2011)

Morgellons: A hidden epidemic or mass hysteria?

It’s a mysterious condition that affects tens of thousands worldwide. But what is it?

It all started in August 2007, on a family holiday in New England. Paul had been watching Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix with his wife and two sons, and he had started to itch. His legs, his arms, his torso – it was everywhere. It must be fleas in the seat, he decided.

But the 55-year-old IT executive from Birmingham has been itching ever since, and the mystery of what is wrong with him has only deepened. When Paul rubbed his fingertips over the pimples that dotted his skin, he felt spines. Weird, alien things, like splinters. Then, in 2008, his wife was soothing his back with surgical spirit when the cotton swab she was using gathered a curious blue-black haze from his skin. Paul went out, bought a £40 microscope and examined the cotton. What were those curling, coloured fibres? He Googled the words: « Fibres. Itch. Sting. Skin. » And there was his answer. It must be: all the symptoms fitted. He had a new disease called morgellons. The fibres were the product of mysterious creatures that burrow and breed in the body. As he read on, he had no idea that morgellons would turn out to be the worst kind of answer imaginable.

Morgellons was named in 2001 by an American called Mary Leitao, whose son complained of sores around his mouth and the sensation of « bugs ». Examining him with a toy microscope, Leitao found him to be covered in unexplained red, blue, black and white fibres. Since then, workers at her Morgellons Research Foundation say they have been contacted by more than 12,000 affected families. Campaign group the Charles E Holman Foundation states there are sufferers in « every continent except Antarctica ». Thousands have written to Congress demanding action. In response, more than 40 senators, including Hillary ClintonJohn McCain and a pre-presidential Barack Obama, pressured the Centres For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) to investigate; in 2006, it formed a special taskforce, setting aside $1m to study the condition. Sufferers include folk singer Joni Mitchell, who has complained of « this weird incurable disease that seems like it’s from outer space… Fibres in a variety of colours protrude out of my skin: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral. Morgellons is a slow, unpredictable killer – a terrorist disease. It will blow up one of your organs, leaving you in bed for a year. »

So it’s new, frightening and profoundly odd. But if you were to seek the view of the medical establishment, you’d find the strangest fact about this disease: morgellons doesn’t exist. (more…)

Victoria Vigors who says Morgellons disease has driven her to the brink of suicideVictoria Vigors who says Morgellons disease has driven her to the brink of suicide

It sounds like something from a horror film: an illness that causes an itchy, crawling sensation all over the body, tiny coloured fibres that ooze out of the skin, and painful sores.

For Victoria Vigors, this began last summer when a strange oily substance ‘leaked’ out of her scalp. After a few weeks, her whole body was affected and, to her alarm, tiny white granules started to ‘come out’ of her pores.

‘I was terrified,’ says Victoria, who lives near Dartford, Kent, with husband Dan, 28, an electrician, and their 15-month-old son Riley. ‘I felt my body had been invaded and I had no idea how to stop it.’

Yet despite such dramatic symptoms, a succession of doctors told the 26-year-old catering assistant they could find nothing physically wrong with her.

The oily substance had disappeared by the time she went to her GP, who told her she had damaged her skin herself and, without carrying out any tests, that the granules were ‘clothing fibres and pet hairs’.

Angry and anxious, Victoria turned to the internet for answers and was amazed to discover that thousands of men and women suffer similar symptoms.

It was an unusual new illness called Morgellons disease – and there was no known cure. Armed with this information, she went to a number of different doctors, but was shocked to find that, according to the British medical establishment, the condition does not exist.

Victoria was told it was a psychological illness – ‘delusions of parasitosis’ – that made her believe her body was infested with parasites or non-living organisms. She was prescribed anti-psychotic drugs and skin creams to alleviate the itching.

The situation drove her to such despair that she contemplated suicide. ‘It’s hard to explain to someone who hasn’t experienced it just how dreadful permanently itching skin can be. I would fall asleep at night, only to wake up in the early hours feeling as if bugs were crawling  all over me. Nothing could stop it,’ she says. (more…)
