Abstract

Abstract

Thirty-three patients in Zaire with streptocerciasis were treated daily with diethylcarbamazine (DEC) for 21 days. Histopathologic studies of biopsy specimens from papules of skin established that during DEC treatment adult male and female die and degenerate. DEC may thus produce radical cures of streptocerciasis.
