Cordylobia anthropophaga ; Cutaneous myiasis
Myiasis is defined as an infestation of live human and vertebrate animals with dipterous larvae, which at least for a period, feed on dead or living tissue of the host, liquid body substances or ingested food. Among several types of myiasis, cutaneous myiasis is classified as the most common type. Cutaneous myiasis is subdivided into furuncular, migratory and wound myiasis based on the infested morphology. Common dipterous larvae for furuncular myiasis include Dermatobia hominis, Cordylobia anthropophaga, Cuterebra spp., Wohlfahrtia vigil and W. opaca. Early lesions resemble other insect bite reactions, but the physician can differentiate the lesions by the visualization of larvae through an aperture with serous exudes as the larvae grow. Although cutaneous myiasis is not uncommon in endemic areas, there has been one previous report of cutaneous myiasis by C. anthropophaga in the Korean dermatological literature. We report here an interesting case of furuncular cutaneous myiasis by C. anthropophaga in a patient after traveling to Cameroon.
