Myiasis is a rare condition that occurred with advanced ulcerated lesions of the oral cavity caused by the larvae in human tissue that evolve to a parasite and is commonly found in tropical countries. Poor oral hygiene is a primary cause for the growth of maggots leading to the development of myiasis. These cases are reported with chief complaint of pain and irritation in a localized area and diagnosed clinically based on the presence of the maggots. Treatment option is manual removal of maggots to cure the inflammatory process and prevent secondary infections. Here, we present a case of oral squamous cell carcinoma with myiasis diagnosed in a 50-year-old female patient.
