Human wound myiasis caused by Phormia regina and Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis in Minia Governorate, Egypt

Abstract: Myiasis is the parasitic infestation of human by the larvae (maggots) of dipterous fly that grow within the host while feeding on its tissue. Cutaneous myiasis is the most considerably encountered clinical form. Moreover, wound (traumatic) myiasis is the main clinical manifestation of cutaneous myiasis. In this research, we aimed to study the type of infesting larvae that are responsible for wound myiasis in the patients in Minia city, Egypt. Three cases of wound myiasis have been noticed among 280 patients wi… Show more

“…In reference to specimens of the Sarcophaga genus, which were found in vulva lesions, their presence is important because, according to previous reports, their larvae produce a cutaneous ulcerative myiasis type. According to Zumpt (1965) and Kettle (1984), this type of myiasis usually affects humans rather than domestic animals (Gaglio et al 2011;Szpila et al 2014;Abdel-Hafeez et al 2015), causing ulcerative type of injuries in tissues. Moreover, these larvae also cause myiasis of considerable importance in cattle.…”

“…This fly has been historically reported as the most important secondary species invading wounds in myiasis caused by Co. hominivorax [92]. It has been reported as agent of myiasis in cattle [138] and humans, infesting wounds in individuals destituted, neglected or with psychiatric problems [139142] or causing gastrointestinal [143] and auricular myiasis [140]. Cases of myiasis by P. regina were reported in Turkey in the auricular, anal and umbilical regions of three newborn kittens; the multiple site infestation occurred because the kittens had been neglected [144].…”
