A three-year-old white male presented with an extremely painful abscess of the nasal portion of the right upper eyelid. A larva identified as family Cuterebridae, genus Cuterebra sp, was removed from the abscess, permitting its rapid resolution. This represents an unusual patient with external ophthalmomyiasis who enjoys excellent nutritional and environmental surroundings.
