Myiasis is defined as parasitic infestation in tissue or organs as a result of diptherous larvae fed with host mucosa, dead tissue or body fluids. In our country, such cases are seen rarely. In this case, open wound myiasis in a patient operated for diverticulitis was discussed. Nosocomial myiasis is a rare clinical condition that occurs in hospitalized patients.
