We encountered two cases of otomyiasis. The first case involved left external auditory meatus myiasis due to Sarcophaga peregrina (Robineau-Desvoidy,1830) in a baby girly approximately two months old. The second case was right external auditory meatus myiasis due to Sarcophaga similis Meade,1876, in a six-year-old girl. Both cases occurred in September 1993.
Previously myiasis was more common. Antimicrobial therapy and amelioration of public health has resulted in a decrease in the number of myiasis cases. Today, it is quite rare.
Recently, twelve cases of genuine myiasis have been reported in Japan. We report two cases of otomyiasis.
