Over than 100 maggots were found to be living in a man's nose.

The stomach-churning discovery was made during a medical examination at the Clinics Hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The 65-year-old man had arrived at the hospital after suffering week-long bleeds from his nose.

The man, who'd previously undergone surgery for a tumour in his nasal passage, had also complained of a "dull ache" on the left side of his nose, difficulty breathing, a foul smell and swelling around the eyes.

He was diagnosed as having a nasal myiasis - an infestation of the skin by developing larvae - and his treatment involved "local application of saline solution and daily removal of larvae, guided with the use of nasal endoscopy", according to the hospital.

After four days, his symptoms cleared and he's since made a full recovery.

No doubt he'll think twice the next time he gets an itch in his nose.
