Resumen

GONZALEZ MEDINA, Alejandro; ARCHILLA PENA, Francisco  y  JIMENEZ RIOS, Gilberto. Myiasis as an entity of interest in occupational medicine. Med. segur. trab. [online]. 2011, vol.57, n.225, pp.331-338. ISSN 1989-7790.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0465-546X2011000400007.

In few occasions, reference to myiasis in the scope of Occupational Medicine has been done. It is a generalized mistake to think that this type of parasitation is exclusive of underdeveloped countries or social layers without the minimal hygiene measures. Nevertheless, it is important to know the etiological agents and to notice the risk that affects certain occupational sectors exposed to organic matter in decay proccess or to certain foods that by their chemical characteristics act of appealing to the Diptera. We studied the cases of myiasis diagnosed in some medical centers located in Granada, Málaga, Almería and Jaén during the period between September 2010 and June 2011 and we considered with special interest those that began by an infestation during the working period. A predominance of Piophila casei (Linnaeus, 1758) and Sarcophaga (Bercaea) africa (Wiedemann, 1824) was observed in laboral myiasis. Also we exhibit the main characteristics of the vital cycle of Diptera of sanitary interest and the safety measures that must be adopted to avoid this type of occupational accident.
