NEIRA O, Patricia; MUNOZ S, Nelson  y  CANTERO C, Daniel. Auricular myiasis caused by Cochliomyia hominivorax (Diptera: Calliphoridae). Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.8, pp.907-909. ISSN 0034-9887.

We report a 37 years old male, coming from Paraguay, who consulted for tinnitus, hearing loss, foreign body sensation and pain in the left ear. He informed that a fly entered into his external auditive channel, five days before consulting. We observed the destruction of the tympanic membrane and 22 live larvae were extracted. Following the larval extraction, these injuries evolved to complete resolution. Larvae were identified as pertaining to the genus Cochliomyia hominivorax (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 907-9)

Palabras clave : Diptera; Myiasis; Tympanic membrane perforation.
