Abstract

Introduction Scarabiasis is a condition where beetles temporarily infest the digestive tract and this disease is seen in children living in tropical countries but is rarely reported. We here report three cases of scarabiasis we came across in our hospital in a span of around 6 months (January 2014 to June 2014).
