We present a case of infection by the nematode Mammomonogamus laryngeus in a patient returning to UK from Dominica. The parasite is discussed in detail and cases described previously are reviewed briefly. Human syngamosis is a rare but important cause of chronic respiratory symptoms and should be considered in those returning from endemic areas, especially the Caribbean.
