cutaneous myiasis due to tumbu-fly, cordylobia anthropophaga in ilorin, kwara state, nigeria.the occurrence and public health significance of cutaneous myiasis were investigated in ilorin, kwara state, nigeria between june and september, 1981. the findings indicated that human myiasis caused by the maggot of african tumbu-fly, cordylobia anthropophaga was relatively common and constituted potential public health problems in the affected parts of the state capital. the importance of animal myiasis due to larvae of sheep bot-fly, oesteris ovis and the cattle grubs, hypoderma bovis, was as ...19826131594
[furunculoid myiasis due to cordylobia anthropophaga in a traveler returning from africa and review of the literature].a 45-year old tourist returning from dakar, senegal had furunculoid cutaneous myiasis caused by larvae of cordylobia anthropophaga. the diagnosis was made on the return to vienna by identification of the larvae found in the skin lesions. since the cutaneous lesions may be easily confused with ordinary types of furunculosis, the diagnosis of cordylobiasis should be excluded in all travelers returning from endemic areas (africa south to the sahara), because this disease may be much more common tha ...19817015709
