Creeping eruption of larva migrans--a case report in a beach volley athlete.
Int J Sports Med. 1997 Nov; 18(8):612-3.IJ

Abstract

The authors describe a case of cutaneous larva migrans in a beach volley athlete. This pathology is found more often in tropical zones than in European countries. There are no previous publications with regard to this condition in athletes. The nematode responsible for this affliction often is the Ancylostoma braziliense. Larval stage of the nematode migrates through the skin; within 72 hours after larval penetration, serpiginous, elevated tunnels are observed. This affliction can be complicated by Loeffler's syndrome. In the case described only dermatological involvement was observed. The patient was treated with 400 mg albendazole tablets twice a day for five days. Within two days of therapy the patient reported less itching; a medical control after ten days did not reveal any signs of active infection.
