Abstract

To the Editor:—  In the Archives for June, 1960, at the Bronx Dermatological Society Meeting on November 19, 1959, I recently read a report on a case of larva migrans in a 23-year-old woman. A discussion on the results of various forms of treatment followed the presentation of the case.No mention, however, was made of a most effective treatment that I have used for some time, namely, electrodesiccation with a fine Hyfrecator needle around the end of the burrow for a few seconds. Usually only 1 or 2 treatments are necessary to effect a cure.
