We report a case of massive Lucilia
sericata myiasis in the neck of a 57-year-old man with primary squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx and hypopharynx that metastasized to the neck lymph nodes.
In the literature, cases of urogenital myiasis caused by Sarcophaga spp., Megaselia scalaris, Thyrsocnema incisilobata, Lucilia
sericata, Eristalis tenax, Dermatobia hominis, Chrysomya bezziana, Fannia canilicularis and Psychoda albipennis (similar to our case) have been reported (3, 6-9).
