Ivermectin treatment for massive orbital myiasis in an empty socket with concomitant scalp pediculosis.
Indian J Ophthalmol. 2012 May-Jun; 60(3):225-7.IJ

Abstract

We report a rare case of massive orbital myiasis following recent lid injury, occurring in the empty socket of an elderly lady, who had concurrent scalp pediculosis. The orbital myiasis was effectively treated with the broad-spectrum antiparasitic agent, ivermectin, thus precluding the need for an exploratory surgery. Ivermectin was also effective in managing the concurrent scalp pediculosis.
