A case report of pseudo-larva migrants with hair fragments on the foot
In the tropics and subtropics, migratory skin syndrome is an infection caused by several hookworm larvae from animals Ancylostoma braziliense, Ancylostoma caninum, Gnathostoma spinigerum, or Strongyloides stercoralis . When examining a patient with skin lesions characteristic of a zigzag pattern, the physician would think the disease was the result of a skin-to-skin infection of the above-mentioned nematode larvae. Submapsular larvae are common in Southeast Asia, South America and Africa. In this report, we report a case of a 2 years-old boy patient with skin lesions that resembles larvae that migrate under the skin caused by a hair.
