Atrophic rhinitis predisposes to nasal myiasis. larval form of chrysomia causes the destruction of surrounding soft tissue and bony structure. Here we report one such case where a middle aged female patient presented with bilateral nasal obstruction, anosmia and recurrent epistaxis. Thorugh examination showed erosion of palate by the localized destruction by maggots. Management included manual removal of maggots with surgical debridement, modified youngs operation and use of palatal obturator. Recovery of the patient shows the effectiveness of combined modality of management and the needless of surgical repair of palatal perforation.
