Myiasis is a rare condition caused due to larvae infestation of body tissues. This can be caused by several species of Dipteran fly larvae and may be secondary to serious medical conditions. Common predisposing factors for oral myiasis are incompetent lips, poor oral hygiene, severe halitosis, anterior open bite, mouth breathing, facial trauma, extraction wounds, ulcerative lesions and carcinoma. Here, we describe a case of oral myiasis in the anterior palatal region in a mentally challenged patient caused by the larvae of Musca Nebulo whose clinical features, management and treatment outcome are discussed and case was followed up periodically.
