Garima [58] | Rajeev Tuli [3] | Sooshrut Thakur

Abstract: Fly larvae (maggots) infesting the ocular structures is known as ophthalmomyiasis. The most frequent cause of ophthalmomyiasis externa is oestrus ovis, and consequently, the most frequent type of ocular myiasis is external disease. Although this is typically seen in rural areas, a case from an urban area is presented here. We describe a case of 90 yr old male with ocular infestation of maggots in right eye already afflicted by poorly differentiated basaloid squamous cell carcinoma.

Keywords: Ophthalmomyiasis; Squamous Cell Carcinoma
