A mature, infertile, female filaria was found in a small pulmonary artery near an infarct-like lesion in the middle lobe of a right lung surgically removed from a middle-aged jute-mill operator, who, after long residence in Indian, returned to Scotland because of sudden chest pain, hemoptysis, and radiographic findings suggestive of bronchial carcinoma. The worm was identified as a species closely resembling , and the lesion was interpreted as resulting from obstructive arterial changes caused by the living worm. The findings are discussed in relation to the filarial etiology of eosinophilic lung.
