Rajani Rawat, Shikha Seth, Ramakant Rawat, Shriti Sinha.

Myiasis is the parasitic infestation of dipterous larvae (maggots) in humans and other vertebrate animals. Maggots are commonly seen on exposed body parts but it is very rare to find on covered body parts like external genitalia. Diagnosis and treatment are simple. We hereby present a rare case of vulvar myiasis in a young unmarried girl living in rural area in conditions of poor hygiene.

Key words: External genitalia, Maggots, Myiasis
