Maggot therapy for subacute mastoiditis.

Abstract

We describe a patient with intractable subacute mastoiditis who was treated successfully by maggot therapy. Maggot debridement of intractable wounds was very successful before the introduction of antibiotics. We describe the indications for use, materials and methods for the rearing of sterile larvae, the modes of action, and the complications of maggot debridement.
