A traveler presented with a furuncular skin abscess and periorbital edema. A larva was surgically removed from the abscess and identified as a larva of Cordylobia rodhaini. Myiasis caused by C. rodhaini is called Lund's fly myiasis and only rarely is reported in humans. After disinfection, the remaining lesion healed without further intervention and the edema resolved.
