Background: Biologists explain the dominance of stinky bugs (Halyomorpha halys) in Europe, Russia, and Ukraine in the summer of 2019 and 2020 with an abnormally hot summer.
Clinical case: During gynecological examination of 29 years old woman in the outpatient department with complaints of discomfort on the external genitalia were revealed more than 20 white foreign bodies. In 3 days, a white bug (Halyomorpha halys) was identified from white foreign bodies.
