Abstract:

Ophthalmomyiasis externa results from the infestation of the conjunctiva by the larval form of dipterous flies. This is particularly a rare condition and only a few cases of Ophthalmomyiasis externa caused by the larva of Oestrus ovis had been reported previously in India. In this study, we discuss a case of Ophthalmomyiasis externa caused by the larva of Oestrus ovis in a 26 year old male. After careful ophthalmological examination and prompt diagnosis, the patient responded well to treatment.


Keywords: Ophthalmomyiasis externa, Dipterous flies, Larval forms, Oestrus ovis
