[Cutaneous myiasis].

Abstract

Cutaneous myiasis is the infestation of skin or mucous membranes with larvae of flies. We describe a case of imported cutaneous infestation with Dermatobia hominis acquired in South America. The diagnosis should be suspected in a patient with a secreting, non-healing furuncular skin lesion and relevant travel history.
