Description: The larvae of a Psychoda sp. (Diptera: Psychodidae) were found in the vagina of a 34-year-old woman with a serohaematic, malodorous discharge subsequent to pelvic pain and cervical biopsy. This occurrence, in the city of Buenos Aires, is the first recorded in Argentina. The larvae of Psychoda spp. usually feed upon bacterial growth inside water pipes. Their presence is interpreted as accidental, perhaps due to local infection suffered by the patient.
Des larves de Psychoda sp. (Diptera: Psychodidae) furent trouvées dans le vagin d’une femme âgée de 34 ans présentant des écoulements sérohématiques malodorants suite à des douleurs pelviennes et une biopsie cervicale. Ce cas fut d’abord rapporté dans la ville de Buenos Aires en Argentine. Les larves de Psychoda spp. se nourrissent habituellement de bactéries qui se multiplient dans la canalisation. Leur présence est interprétée comme accidentelle, probablement due à l’infection locale dont souffrait la patiente.
