Vaginal myiasis due to Sarcophaga peregrina (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) on a patient with atrial fibrillation, cerebral infarction and leg amputation


, : Vaginal myiasis due to Sarcophaga peregrina (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) on a patient with atrial fibrillation, cerebral infarction and leg amputation. Medical Entomology and Zoology 56(3): 247-249

A 78-year-old woman, who was admitted to a hospital in Tochigi Prefecture, was found to be infested with maggots around her perineal region in June, 2001. The patient suffered from cerebral infarction and had undergone amputation of her right leg. There was also inflammation and purulent matter around the vulvovaginal lesion. Therefore, this attracted the female sarcophagid fly to deposit larvae around the perineum of the patient.
