Three adult patients (one woman and two men) presented with polymorphous skin manifestations caused by pigeon ticks (Argas reflexus). These manifestations were characterized by wheals with a central hemorrhagic point in the first patient, crusted-ulcerative lesions in the second, and pustular lesions in the third patient. We observed specific IgE against a somatic extract (antigen A) and the saliva (antigen B) of A. reflexus in two patients.
