Cutaneous larva migrans (CLM) is an uncommon cutaneous creeping eruption caused by the invasion and migration of nematode larvae into the skin. Burrowing larvae produce intensely pruritic, serpiginous, raised erythematous skin lesions. Most cases of CLM reported in Korea involved travelers returning from endemic areas with tropical or subtropical climates. We report herein a case of CLM with no history of travelling to endemic area and briefly review the relevant literature.
