Abstract

ABRAHAM, Leonardo Spagnol et al. Dermoscopy features for the diagnosis of furuncular myiasis. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2011, vol.86, n.1, pp.160-162. ISSN 0365-0596.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962011000100027.

We describe a 56-year-old Brazilian woman presenting three nodular lesions on the scalp. Dermoscopy of all lesions showed a creamy-white body with central bird's feet-like structures surrounded by a thorn crown, corresponding to the posterior segment of the Dermatobia hominis larvae. These novel dermoscopic features allowed us to easily diagnose furuncular myiasis.

Keywords : Dermoscopy; Diagnosis; Myiasis; Parasitic diseases.
