Abstract

Furuncular myiasis caused by Dermatobia hominis is endemic throughout Central and South America. We report a case of furuncular myiasis in a traveler returned from Costa Rica. The case is unique because the primary care physician obtained magnetic resonance images. The images, however, do not show any characteristic features that assist in diagnosis.
