Title: Disseminated Tungiasis [tungíase Disseminada]
Author: Vallarelli A.F.A.
de Souza E.M.
Abstract: Tungiasis is a zoophilic and anthropophilic infestation caused by Tunga penetrans. It is endemic in Latin America and in the Caribbean. It occurs mainly in impoverished communities that have no access to basic sanitation and in individuals that visit contaminated areas. The most common penetration site of this ectoparasite is the periungueal region of the feet. The authors present its disseminated form occurring in a patient inhabiting a rural area. © 2011 by Anais Brasileiros de Dermatologia.
