Abstract

Cutaneous larva migrans is a distinctive dermatitis caused by the filariform larvae of certain nematode parasites. Most often associated with tropical climates, it has increasingly been noted in nontropical settings. To familiarize northern clinicians with this condition, a case report is presented and its pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment are reviewed.
