1/4. Oral myiasis caused by hypoderma bovis larvae in a child: a case report.

    myiasis is the invasion of living tissue of humans and other mammals by the eggs or larvae of flies of the order of diptera. It occurs mainly in the tropic, and is associated with inadequate public and personal hygiene. Oral myiasis in humans appears to be rare. This article records a case of oral myiasis caused by larvae of Hypoderma bovis. Two different pathologic soft tissue sockets were observed in the vestibular sulcus at the level of the both deciduous laterals along the deep upper lip tissues.

2/4. Intracerebral myiasis from Hypoderma bovis larva in a child. Case report.

    Cerebral myiasis with a 10-day history of convulsions due to an intracerebral hematoma caused by a Hypoderma bovis larva is reported in an 8-year-old child. Computerized tomography (CT) showed the hematoma in a right parieto-occipital location. The H. bovis larva and the extensive intracerebral hematoma were discovered during surgery. Among human parasitoses, cerebral myiasis is rare: a review of the literature revealed only two reports, one published in 1969 and one in 1980. This is the first case that has been diagnosed as cerebral myiasis with exact identification of the Hypoderma bovis larva both from the CT scans and at surgery in a patient during life.

4/4. Hypereosinophilia due to myiasis.

    We report the case of a 2-year-old boy with hypereosinophilia who presented with fever, muscle pain and heart, CNS and skin involvement. He was treated with steroids with partial response. Six months after diagnosis of hypereosinophilia, several scalp nodules were surgically removed and Hypoderma bovis larvae were found, which led to the diagnosis of cutaneous myiasis. Following removal of the larvae, the clinical and hematological manifestations returned to normal.
