A Case of Myiasis, due to Calliphora erythrocephala, occurring in Man

  • W. Henwood Harvey (a1)

The case described in this note is believed to be unique, for no similar record has been found after search of the relevant literature. The subject of myiasis has been carefully reviewed and abstracted by Huber (1899), Umaña (1915) and Bedford (1927), and no cogent references of more recent date have been discovered.
