Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  A case of intestinal myiasis in a boy due to the larvae of the “soldier-fly,” Linné, is reported. This is apparently the second human case to be recorded.
  • 2.  Descriptions of the larva and adult fly are given.
  • 3.  The larvae caused symptoms of local irritation in the stomach and rectum, and spells of fainting.
  • 4.  They were apparently acquired by eating raw fruit or vegetables on which the eggs of the fly had been deposited.
