Although cutaneous larva migrans is more commonly seen in the southeastern US and tropical regions of the world, patients with such parasitic involvement may present in other non-endemic areas for various reasons, particularly travelers returning from tropical vacations. Awareness of the clinical presentation and symptomatology of cutaneous larva migrans is important for all physicians, including those practicing in northern climates, for prompt recognition and effective treatment of the disease. Furthermore, cutaneous larva migrans should be of particular interest to podiatrists, because the infestation commonly involves the feet, and a patient may initially present for treatment of secondary manifestations, ie, dermatitis, pruritus, or infection, as in this case report.
