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.
