|furunculaire myiasis (aandoening)|
Furuncular myiasis in humans is caused by two species: the Cayor worm (larvae of the African tumbu fly Cordylobia anthropophaga) and the larvae of the human botfly (Dermatobia hominis). In the case of Cordylobia anthropophaga, the females lay their eggs on damp fabric or on the ground. The larvae penetrate the skin following contact with the ground or with non-ironed contaminated fabric. Infection becomes evident within 10 to 15 days with the formation of a pseudo-furuncle or emergence of a maggot. Infestation is usually localized to the scalp of infected individuals.
