MARTINEZ-HERNANDEZ, Fernando et al. Myiasis caused by Dermatobia hominis in Mexico: morphological and molecular identification using the cytochrome oxidase I gene. Rev. Inst. Med. trop. S. Paulo [online]. 2019, vol.61, e45.  Epub 12-Set-2019. ISSN 1678-9946.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1678-9946201961045.

Myiasis caused by Dermatobia hominis , the human botfly, is frequent in the Americas, however, scarce morphological and molecular information exist regarding this dipteran. We describe three cases in urban areas of Mexico were D. hominis is not endemic. Morphological and genetic identification were performed using the cytochrome oxidase I as a molecular marker. The mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I gene is useful for inferring the genetic divergence of D. hominis .

Palavras-chave : Dermatobia hominis.; Myiasis; Cytochrome oxidase I ( coxI ); Mitochondrial genes; Molecular markers.
