Myiasis in man is discussed, with case reports and special emphasis on hypoderma myiasis. Sparse contributions in dermatological literature has prompted this report on patients with prominent skin manifestations. Value of systemic therapy is questioned, since most cases are self-limiting and cause little disability in uncomplicated cases.
