Abstract

We have reported the case of a 54-year-old man with recurrent painful migratory subcutaneous nodules associated with marked blood eosinophilia and a eosinophilia pleural effusion. The entire syndrome was subsequently determined to be due to cutaneous myiasis caused by the larvae of Hypoderma lineatum, the cattle botfly. Infestation by this or other dipterous fly larvae should be among the parasitic diseases considered in the differential diagnosis of any patient with similar symptoms.
