ABSTRACT
We report a case of pseudointestinal myiasis treated as helminthic infestation for years together with antihelminthic treatment for many times. Careful examination of faecal sample and clinical examination helped to confirm the diagnosis indicating that use of accurate diagnostic tools plays an important role in the confirmation of disease and forms an important part in further planning of appropriate therapy and to avoid unnecessary use of incorrect therapeutic approach.
