Dermatitis in the form of creeping eruption was produced in a human volunteer by the third-stage larva of Strongyloides myopotami and S. procyonis. The similarity of the experimentally produced lesions to those acquired naturally in swamps suggests that the larva of either species may be the causative organism in such cases.
