Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN) overlap is a severe cutaneous adverse reaction with predominantly drug-related etiology which is an immune complex mediated hypersensitivity disorder. Oral myiasis is defined as an intra-oral infestation of the living tissues of animals or humans by dipteral larvae. Herein, we report a rare case of an eight-year-old female child who presented to us with SJS-TEN overlap and was accidentally diagnosed with oral myiasis during her course of hospitalisation. This case report gives an overview of oral mucosal myiasis in childhood as a rare association with SJS-TEN overlap.
