Abstract

Myiasis is a parasitic infestation, rarely seen in the vulval region with more cases being reported in tropical, subtropical and warm temperate climate. Cutaneous myiasis can be misdiagnosed as cellulitis, leishmaniasis, sebaceous cysts, staphylococcal boil, insect bite or skin abscess. Knowledge of the characteristic clinical findings and the close inspection of skin lesions are key to diagnosing myiasis. We report a case of vulval maggots which was misdiagnosed as vulvar carcinoma and caused undue anxiety to the patient.
