We describe a case of a 67-year old woman who develops
three painful subcutaneous nodules with surrounding
erythema and a central hemorrhagic crust
localized on the left wrist and the upper back after having
spent her holidays in Mexico. Soon after the first
visit at our clinic she was able to extract a larva, allowing
to diagnose a cutaneous myiasis from furuncular
subtype.
There is a worldwide distribution of myiasis, but with
more species and abundance in lower socioeconomic
regions of tropical and subtropical regions. With
a higher number of returning travelers from these regions
we are more often confronted with tropical infections
or parasites implicating knowledge about
differential diagnosis, diagnostic and therapeutic
approaches.
