Nasal leech infestation of man.
Trop Geogr Med. 1987 Jan; 39(1):94-5.TG

Abstract

We present a case in a male patient from Indonesia of nasal leech infestation by Dinobdella ferox that had gone unnoticed for at least three months. The possibility of leech endoparasitism should not be overlooked in people presenting with epistaxis or hemoptysis and a history of recent contact with fresh water lakes or streams in tropical regions.
