Adv Skin Wound Care. 2020 Jul; 33(7):356-359.AS

Abstract

GENERAL PURPOSE

To provide information about infection with cutaneous larva migrans (CLM).

TARGET AUDIENCE

This continuing education activity is intended for physicians, physician assistants, NPs, and nurses with an interest in skin and wound care.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES/OUTCOMES

After participating in this educational activity, the participant will:1. Distinguish the clinical features, diagnosis, and management of CLM.2. Explain the epidemiology of CLM.

ABSTRACT

Cutaneous larva migrans is a hookworm infection and one of the most common skin diseases of tourists in tropical countries.
