The mystery that is Morgellons disease: is it really a neuropsychiatric disorder disguised by dermatologic symptoms?

With the recent news reports on Morgellons disease, I got to thinking about this poorly understood disease. There is really nothing known about Morgellons, but I am surprised that most of the research into this disease is conducted from a dermatological standpoint. Sure, this is a skin related disorder with most, if not all, symptoms being dermatologic. However, many doctors believe that this is actually a neuropsychiatric disorder in origin.

The following is a great article on this topic.
So what are your thoughts?
