Cutaneous larva migrans is also known as creeping eruption or sandworm disease. The disease is caused by movement of hook worm (helminth) larvae through epidermis layer of the skin. This typically is the result of contact with dog or cat stool/feces in soil. CLM is more common in warm and tropical regions. Typical patient history involves sunbathing, walking on soil, walking on beach or travel in a tropical environment.
