Accidental miasis caused by Piophila casei: a case report

Abstract

Miasis are infestations caused by larvae ingested with damaged food or food washed with contaminated water. Musca domestica (muscidi), Sarcophaga carnaria (sarcofagidi) and Piophila casei (piofilidi) are usually involved. The above miasis are known as involuntary, while the voluntary ingestion of larvae regards, in fact, only P. casei. In this paper we describe the case of a patient who ingested some larvae of P. casei, taking back a remarkable clinical picture.
