So called “Morgellons Disease” is actually Cutaneous Vasculitis with fiber production. This is caused by a Bartonella infection.
Bartonella infection significantly raises plasma VEGF levels, vascular endothelial growth factor.

“In fact, B. henselae induces host cell production of the angiogenic factor vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), leading to proliferation of endothelial cells”

The condition Cutaneous Vasculitis should be the diagnosis when dealing with so called “Morgellons”
“Cutaneous necrotizing vasculitis is a not uncommon disorder characterized by an inflammation of the blood vessel walls and skin lesions.”
“VEGF levels in diagnosis of vasculitic neuropathy”
“Conclusions: The results from our study indicate that plasma VEGF levels are significantly associated with vasculitic neuropathy and may be used to predict this disease.”
'Vasculitis is a systemic illness with inflammation in the blood vessels. The inflammation may lead to occlusion of blood vessels and subsequent ischemia in the organs and tissues. When the inflammation is in the blood vessels supplying peripheral nerves, patients may develop vasculitic neuropathy.”
Fiber production is also present in the “Morgellons” condition.

“Genetic skin diseases caused by mutations in keratin intermediate filaments”
“Keratin intermediate filaments are the major differentiation products of epithelial cells such as the epidermis. The filaments are highly dynamic entities involved in the maintenance of the structural integrity of both the individual cells and the entire tissue. Recent biochemical studies suggest that the keratin proteins overlap each other in several key locations when packed together in filaments. Interestingly, mutations that introduce inappropriate amino acid substitutions in at least some of these overlap regions cause defective keratin filaments that result in at least three classes of auiosomal dominant skin disease.”
