Myiasis is an infection of live mammalian tissue by the larvae of dipterous flies and commonly found in the tropical and subtropical area. It usually infects domestic and wild animals, but rarely affects humans as well. Neonatal umbilical myiasis is an unusual occurrence with only a few reported cases in the literature. We report a case of an 8-day-old neonate from a rural area who presented with umbilical myiasis caused by larval form of Chrysomya megacephala.
