ABSTRACT
Myiasis is the infestation of body tissues or organs by dipterous fly species and is often associated with poor hygiene. Urogenital myiasis is uncommon, and Psychoda albipennis-induced urogenital myiasis is very rare. In this article, we present a case of urinary myiasis caused by Psychoda albipennis. The patient claimed that he had observed more than 10 black-grayish-colored mobile particles in his urine. We identified them as the fourth stage of the moth fly Psychoda albipennis. The patient was a farmer and lived in Ankara, Turkey. He was treated with antibiotics, and there were no complications during or after treatment.
