    Demodex mites are part of the normal fauna of hair follicles of many, if not all, healthy mammal species. Normally these parasites live in harmony with its host. However, under states of putative immunosuppression these acarids undergo excessive proliferation and cause clinical disease, either localized or generalized. This paper describes four cases of Demodicosis in roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) with localized to generalized alopecia.
