Abstract

To the Editor.—  Creeping eruption (larva migrans) is a rare disease in Oregon, since larvae of dog and cat hookworm do not, as a rule, survive the low soil temperature in this area. One relatively severe infestation seen in a 12-year-old boy who had never been out of the state was found to be due to larvae deposited in a deep shag rug by an unhousebroken cat. To my knowledge, this is the first time these larvae have been traced to sandy soil trapped in an indoor rug.
