This was a thirty-five year-old, white, female patient born in Paraíba and resident in Jacarepaguá/RJ for the last 34 years. She presented with a cluster of reddish-coppery asymptomatic macules and papules on the left buttock, arising 30 days after a waterfall bathing at the countryside of the state. The diagnostic hypotheses were larva migrans, residual herpes simplex and sarcoidosis. Histopathological examination showed epithelioid granulomas surrounding eggs with an insinuation of a lateral spine, containing miracidia. Complete examination of gastrointestinal system and parasitological stool analysis did not show any alterations.
