Abstract

Tropical botfly infection is well described, though endemic botfly myiasis in humans is rare in temperate regions. Reported is a case of myiasis from Cuterebra botfly larvae in a man from northern New York with no tropical travel. The authors discuss the epidemiology, life-cycle, and diagnosis of non-tropical botfly infection.
