Abstract

  Myiasis is the infestation of larvae of flies of the order Diptera, in humans. The larvae can infect various parts of the human body including, skin, necrotic tissues, and natural cavities of living persons. Myiasis in the tracheostomy stoma is very rare. We present one such case of myiasis in the tracheostoma in a 42-year-old male patient who is a known case of retroviral disease and pseudobulbar palsy.

Keywords: Myiasis; Tracheostomy Stoma
