    They were deliberately put there, it's not a case of negligence.

    Exactly, not sure why the OP and others are squirming! They're friendly little 'microsurgeons.'

    The procedure is known as Debridement; Maggot Debridement Therapy (MDT).

    Urgh ... and that bit when the whole wound kind of ripples ... I've heard of medicinal maggots but that doesn't look anything like the pictures I've seen of that - if they're using them medicinally they don't pack the wound with maggots like that, there's generally only a few. That's an infestation, and seeing that it comes from a tropical country I can see how that can happen in a short time.

    I once saw a picture of some badly infected gums which had maggots living in them. How anyone can get maggots in their mouth is just absolutely beyond me. I feel so sick now ...

    Maggots are actually a fantastic source of protein.
