Human myiasis is most common in tropical regions, though reports of fly larval infestation are available throughout the world. Travelling to larval endemic areas may be a predisposing factor. Fly larvae show parasitism during their 1st to 3rd instar stages which later leave the host to continue their life cycle as pupa and then in to adult flies. Climate conditions including humidity and warm environment help larval developmental stages. Studies have showed that myiasis may be due to fly larvae that are endemically present in a particular region or can be imported from other regions mainly by travelling. Most of the fly larvae are transmitted to humans through pet or domestic animals that are infested by larvae.
