We describe two cases of hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans acquired in Brittany (North-Western France). The patients were a 23-year-old woman and a 28-year-old man. In both patients the feet were involved. In the second patient, a superinfection due to Staphylococcus aureus was recorded. The appearance in Brittany of a reservoir of nematodes capable of causing hookworm-related cutaneous larva migrans is hypothesized.
