Abstract

Myiasis; a term first introduced by HOPE refers to invasion of living tissue of humans and other mammals by the eggs or larvae of flies of the order of Diptera. Orbital involvement occurs in approximately 5% of all cases of myiasis1. A 72 year old patient is presented with orbital myiasis that was successfully treated by enucleation and grafted with split thickness of skin.
