The woman who will never forget her honeymoon!

They say you never forget your honeymoon.

And the old saying goes for a woman who had a fly in her thigh after her wedding to Belize.

The unidentified patient went to the hospital – but only after living with the larvae for two months.

Upon her return to her native Florida, she initially believed that she suffered a spider bite, which was later infected.

Before and After: The unidentified patient, who spent a honeymoon in Belize on the Central American coast, shows the growth of the botfly larvae (right) and postoperative surgery (left).

However, when an antibiotic course was not treated, she sought further medical attention, with doctors cutting out the leaked mass.

At the investigation, Tampa General Hospital staff found a maggot with rows of spines and hooks.

It was later confirmed that it is a human fly larva, scientifically known as Dermatobia hominis – native to tropical America.

According to a report on Live Science, the patient believes she is due to a tick bite she suffered while riding in the popular area.

MYIASIS: THE FACTS

Myiasis comes from the Latin "myia", which means fly, and "Iasis" means illness.

The larvae of the flies can feed on living or dead tissue of the host, liquid body substance or ingested food.

When the tissues in the oral cavity are attacked by parasites, it is called oral myiasis.

People at risk of this rare disease include those with a poorer social background and people who have suffered from wounds or other facial injuries. It is also more common in regions with a warmer climate.

Infections of the nose and ears are dangerous, as it may be possible to invade the brain. In these cases, the mortality rate is 8 percent.

Myiasis – an infection by a fly larva – is rarely seen in the USA. However, it is very common among residents and visitors of tropical regions.

It happens when the female fly lays its eggs on the body of a host, such as a mosquito that bites into human skin when fed.

Due to the heat of the skin, the eggs hatch into larvae that breathe through the puncture hole.

Unlike other family members of the fly, the larva of the human fly remains close to the surface of the skin surface.

The larval stage in skin tissue can last between 27 and 128 days before the adult's larva falls to the ground.

From there, he pupates between 27 and 78 days, before he ripens to an adult fly.

The bizarre story was published in the highly effective Case Reports of the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

Myiasis comes from the Latin "myia", which means fly, and "Iasis" means illness.

The larvae of the flies can feed on living or dead tissue of the host, liquid body substance or ingested food.
