Abstract


Dermatozoonoses are skin diseases caused by arthropod pathogens. This group of skin diseases creates a particular diagnostic problem. Dermatozoonoses include deep and superficial skin changes. Superficial skin changes occur at the sites of bites or after contact with poisonous animals. Deep skin changes occur due to the penetration of the parasite into the skin. A prime example of this disease is dermatobiasis. It is an obligate myiasis, caused by the larvae of Dermatobia hominis flies (Oestridae family) that inhabit mostly in forests of Central and South America. A clinical case of the development of furunculoid myiasis in a russian geologist on a business trip to Argentina is presented.
