Abstract

Myiasis is a rare Dipteria larvae parasitic infestation arising in humans or animals which can invade different parts of the body. Oral Myiais is the rarest form of this rare disease to occur and may be occasionally encountered in developing third world countries owing to poor hygiene due inadequate sanitation amenities. Thorough knowledge of this rare condition aids in early and prompt diagnosis facilitating dimunition of morbidity and mortality. Here we report a case of oral myiasis in 70 year old alcoholic male patient with a neglected mandibular fracture.
