Abstract

Case histories are reported for four persons who had furuncular, traumatic, and nasal myiasis in Connecticut during 1980. Third-stage sp. and larvae were removed from sores or wounds, a 2nd-stage sp. larva was dislodged from cutaneous tissue, and 3rd-stage larvae of were extracted from nasal membranes. Human exposure to these facultative or obligate dipteran parasites occurred at residences in urban and suburban settings, including a convalescent home and a hospital. Infestations were asymptomatic in three cases, and following removal of larvae, each person recovered without further complications.
