Cutaneous myiasis is a skin infestation by the larvae of certain species of flies. Myiasis affects the larvae (maggots) of two-leaf (dipterous) flies. There are three types cutaneous infestation, which depend on the species involved: Furunkuloid myiasis wound myiasis myiasis Wandering Sometimes other organs involved (eg, nasopharynx, gastrointestinal tract, urogenital tract.). The infestation usually occurs in tropical countries, so most cases in the US are present in people who have recently arrived from endemic areas.

Dermatobia hominis, indigenous to South and Central America, is the most common cause of travelers who return to the US. Other species are Cordylobia anthropophaga (in sub-Saharan Africa), various Cuterebra sp. (In North America) and Wohlfahrtia sp. (In North America, Europe and Pakistan). Many of these flies do not lay their eggs on people, but on other insects (eg. As mosquitoes) or objects (eg. As drying laundry), which may come into contact with the skin. Larvae hatch from the eggs on the skin that burrow into the skin and develop through successive stages (instars) to mature larvae. The mature larvae be 1-2 cm long, depending on the species. If the infection is left untreated, the larvae occur ultimately emerge from the skin and fall to the ground to continue their life cycle. Typical symptoms include itching, a sense of movement and sometimes stabbing pain. The initial lesion may resemble a Arthropodenbiss or bacterial boils, but can be distinguished with sero-sanguinolent drainage by the presence of a central punctum. Sometimes, a small portion of the larvae end visible. Lesions of D. hominis are more common on the face, scalp and extremities, while lesions of C. anthropophaga tend to be areas that are covered by clothing, and to appear on the head, neck and back. As larvae require atmospheric O2, an occlusion of the skin opening can cause them to leave the skin or at least come closer to the surface, which facilitates a manual removal. The numerous Okklusionsmethoden include the use of petroleum jelly, nail polish, bacon or a tobacco paste. However, larvae that die during occlusion, difficult to remove and often trigger an intense inflammatory reaction. The larvae can be extracted through a small incision. Ivermectin, oral (200 mcg / kg, 1 dose) or topically, can kill the larvae or induce migration. Wound myiasis open wounds and mucous membranes, typically homeless, alcoholics and other people in poor social conditions, can be infested by maggots, mostly green or black blowfly. Unlike the larvae ordinary houseflies, most triggers of wound myiasis invade healthy as well as necrotic tissue. Treatment is usually with irrigation and debridement manual.
