Tungiasis is an infestation of the skin caused by the flea Tunga penetrans. It is not rare in western Europe because of tourism to tropical and subtropical countries. However, tungiasis has been very rarely reported in children. We describe a case of tungiasis in a 3-year-old child. The infestation was localized to the second toe of the left foot and was characterized by an atypical clinical presentation.
