Now usually when you get an ear ache first thing you’re usually told is you could have water in your ear.
A 64 year old man went to the the hospital for an ear ache and both him and the doctor when they discovered the cause of his ear ache.
He let doctors physically examine him, and they discovered his ear canal was being obstructed by “numerous motile larvae”.
They managed to get rid of the larvae using a particular type of forceps, after washing the patient’s ear out with water.
Unfortunately a small part of the eardrum had also been punctured by the flesh-eating larvae.
The man was seen at the Hospital Pedro Hispano in Matosinhos in Portugal, and was diagnosed with a myiasis infection.
