Three cases of human myiasis due to two species of Cordylobia were reported. In case 1,the patient was a 35 year old Japanese woman who had been in West Cameroun in 1979. A mass attended with a severe pain was found in the right upper-eyelid. Two maggots taken out from the lesion were identified as the third-stage lervae of Cordylobia rodhaini Gedoelst, 1909. In cases 2 and 3,the patients were the siblings, a Japanese boy aged 6 and a Japanese girl aged 2,who had been in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire in August 1982. The masses attended with a severe pain were found in the fore-head and shoulder of the boy and in the back of the head of the girl. Six maggots were taken out from the lesions and they were identified as the third-stage larvae of Cordylobia anthropophaga (Blanchard, 1893).
