Abstract

Summary

An adult female containing microfilariae was found in the subcutaneous tissues of the abdominal region of a man from Florida. Structures resembling dead microfilariae were seen within nearby granulomata. The eosinophilia, antibody titers, and apparent response to diethylcarbamazine suggest occult filariasis similar to that seen in Southeast Asia.
