Two patients with creeping eruption were seen in a nonendemic area. They were treated with Thiabendazole, 25 mg/kg for a total of four doses, 12 hours apart. Both patients required retreatment. The larva could not be found in spite of serial sectioning a 3 mm biopsy specimen and several careful searches with a hand lens.
