[Dermatobia hominis furuncular myiasis in a man returning from Latin America: first imported case in Tunisia].

Human cutaneous myiasis is a common dermatosis in tropical zones. The purpose of this report is to describe the first imported case of furuncular myiasis caused by Dermatobia hominis (human botfly) in Tunisia. The patient was a man returning from Bolivia. Furuncular myiasis was suspected based on epidemiological data and clinical examination showing pruriginous elevated lesions. Diagnosis was confirmed by identification of Dermatobia hominis larvae. Treatment was based mainly on manual removal of larvae. Since furuncular myiasis is unknown in Tunisia, it is important to remember this parasitic disease in differential diagnosis in patients presenting boil-like inflammatory papules following travel to Latin America.
