Abstract
The dermatitis Paederus is a dermatitis contact caused by caustic and vesicant activity of pederin. It occurs after skin contact with beetles Paederus kind belonging to the family Staphylinidae. The geographical distribution of these insects is global. Diagnosis is primarily based on clinical evidence and the epidemiological context. We report below six cases of pederose to Paederus occurred among the Moroccan Level II hospital staff in Bunia deployed in the framework UN peacekeeping operations in the Democratic Republic of Congo(MONUSCO).
