This is so vile and disgusting. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little. A man returning from Africa has a most unwelcome surprise souvenir he brought home….more details:


From the article

A man who suffered itching and skin sores on his return from a trip to Africa was found to have 20 maggots living under his skin.

The man, known only as Ma, from Guangzhou in China, went to see his local doctor complaining of painful, blistering skin sores after working in the continent for six months.

After two weeks, his condition failed to improve, so he visited a dermatologist at the Shenzhen Nanshan Hospital.

The dermatologist examined him and determined that maggots were living beneath the skin of his abdomen and right thigh.

A blood test showed high levels of eosinophils, white blood cells for combating parasites and infections, which confirmed the diagnosis.

The man later underwent a minor surgical procedure to extract a total of 20 live maggots from his body.



So nasty. This plus Ebola pretty much ruled out my safari dream vacation to Africa. Oh well.
