Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  Groups of microfilariae aggregate in the spleen of some cases of Filaria loa infection.
  • 2.  These areas of localization are associated with an inflammatory reaction and fibrosis.
  • 3.  A tissue eosinophilia accompanies the filarial inflammation.
  • 4.  These reactions in the spleen may be analogous to the external chronic Calabar swellings.
