Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) is a helminthic infection most commonly found in tropical and subtropical geographic areas. However, with the ease and increase of foreign travel by many around the world, CLM is no longer confined to these areas. CLM is an erythematous, serpiginous, cutaneous eruption caused by accidental percutaneous penetration and subsequent migration of larvae. Here, we present a case diagnosed as CLM and treated with Albendazole.
