Caption

Cutaneous larva migrans, a skin rash on a young man's upper arm caused by the burrowing larvae of nematode hookworms (Ancylostoma sp. & Strongyloides sp.) normally parasitic in cats & dogs or by the maggots of certain flies. The movement of the larvae beneath the skin is traced by red wheals that cause great irritation. Cutaneous larva migrans is also called creeping eruption. Hookworm infections are treated with diethylcarbamazine or thiabendazole; maggots may be surgically removed.
