Kelly was ready to get married, but a few hours before the wedding she started acting strange, the poor girl started hallucinating and screaming that she heard a strange noise in her ears.
She also had terrible headaches that she thought would drive her crazy.
Her family immediately took her to the hospital, where doctors initially suspected she had an ear infection or the bite of an infected mosquito. But when they checked on Kelly, they found something terrible that made her cry.
Dr. Edward Bannack looked at the back of his head and said, “My suspicions are certain.” Kelly didn’t go mad, but an inch-long caterpillar had turned into an old sore on her scalp, which was the cause of her strange symptoms.
Apparently, the woman was bitten by a mosquito during a bachelor party in Costa Rica. The insect deposited its larvae in the wound and grew into the flesh.
According to some statistics, this is not the only time this has happened. Another well-known case is that of Rochelle Harris, who developed the same type of caterpillar in her ear after going to Peru with her boyfriend.
According to the woman, the two encountered a swarm during their journey and she believes the insect entered the ear to receive its larvae.
