Abstract

: The authors describe an unusual infestation of an ulcerative squamous cell carcinoma of the scalp and skull with Diptera Sarcophaga larvae. Human myiasis is rare in temperate zones and presents a rather unique neurosurgical challenge. The clinical presentation and treatment of human myiasis are briefly discussed.
