Figure 2: Ultrasound showed fusiform echogenic image.

Mentions: A 20-year-old military soldier from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil presented a nodule with a central pore on the glans penis with serosanguineous discharge, bilateral inguinal lymphadenopathy, and severe local pain (Figure 1). He had returned from a military mission in a rural area with poor hygiene conditions 2 weeks earlier. Ultrasound assessment with color flow Doppler showed a fusiform irregular echogenic image measuring 11 × 3 × 6 mm without urethra communication, confirming clinical suspicion of furuncular myiasis (Figure 2). He received ivermectin (200 μg/kg), and a Dermatobia hominis larva was surgically extracted (Figure 3).
