    Yep, at times it looka lika worm, most of the time it looka lika dictyostelium slugging worm. It seems to behave like a sort of dicty. Although the PTB claim that this is not pathological in humans. At the same time there is a report of a dictyostelium polycephalum human infection. Dictyostelium polycephalum Infection of Human Cornea - Vol. 16 No. 10 - October 2010 - Emerging Infectious Disease journal - CDC Whatever it may be, it seems to be worldwide. There are 956 photos of it doing it's thing at that photobucket link.

    Moving this to pseudoscience. There's no evidence that "Morgellons" is a real ailment. There's quite a bit of evidence it's a psychological condition that have been covered in several recent threads.

    Dictyosteluum polycephalum is a completely different condition and would be a welcome thread.

    No worries from here. It was originally placed in Health according to the description of that forum. You could just remove the "morgellons" reference.

    Ah yes. The old, "it looks like" argument. How about DNA testing or something?

    Indeed. And lo! It is confirmed by DNA testing. (And that appears to be a unique case.)

    Similar analyses of Morgellons samples does not produce the same results. I wonder why?

    There appears to be a reasonably solid body of peer-reviewed evidence for the diagnosis of Morgellons (and none, that I am aware of, that contradicts that). Why do thing a Web photo album is a better source of information?

    It isn't a real physical condition. It is a real condition (diagnosable and treatable). Some people just won't accept this, perhaps because the diagnosis has the word "delusional" in it.
