Miasi congiuntivale da Oestrus ovis: descrizione di un nuovo caso e problematiche in tema di miasi in ambito umano
AbstractThe Authors related a third case of ophtalmomyasis occurred to a young adult female, during holidays in Sardinia, near a beed of reeds bordering on the beach in the north of the island.Various larvae were captured in the eyeconjunctiva and three were identified at the optical microscope as first stadium larvae of Oestrus ovis on the base of typical and reported features and characters. The Authors relate the main diagnostics keys and algorithmes for the myasis that could affect humans, as in Italy as in developing countries, and suggest a major attention to these renewed clinical pathologies caused by larvae of various genera and species of flies, not only in natural cavities (like conjunctiva) but also on the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues, and in intestinal tract.
