Flesh eating parasite
 
A flesh-eating parasite ate away at a man’s face and back while he was vacationing in South America with his fiancé, the Daily Mail reported.
Adam Spencer, 23, from Veneta, Ore., had just proposed to his girlfriend Shalynn Pack when a strange scab began developing on his face as the pair crossed the Bolivian salt flats.
Spencer dismissed the wound as nothing serious; however, over time the scab began to grow and spread across the face. Soon pus began seeping from the sore, according to the Daily Mail.
Spencer received antibiotics from a local doctor, and upon returning home to Oregon, he also sought out the advice of Dr. Stephan Ames of Thurston Medical Clinic in Springfield.
'”Adam came in with a wound on the right side of his face. It was firm, but soft and mushy on the inside,” Ames told the Daily Mail. “I was concerned it was a staph infection, which can infect multiple organs and could cause him to die.”

Ames prescribed penicillin, but while tests found no evidence of a staph infection, the wound continued to grow.
“We didn't know when it was going to stop,” Pack told the Daily Mail. “It was encroaching his eye. It was pretty frightening.”
Spencer also began to have trouble swallowing when large white lumps began to grow in the back of his throat. Meanwhile, the sores spread to his back.
Spencer visited Dr. William Muth of the Samaritan Infectious Disease Clinic in Corvallis, Ore., who diagnosed him with Mucocutaneous Leishmaniasis, caused by a single-cell parasite known as Leishmania.
