Abstract

Microfilariae of were seen in specimens of skin taken by biopsy from 4 of 6 subjects previously shown to be positive for microfilariae in the blood. While most of the microfilariae were confined to small blood vessels in the papillary and superficial reticular dermis, some were in perivascular spaces and a few were noted in the dermal interstitium. There was no microscopic evidence that the minimal cutaneous disease seen could be directly attributed to the microfilariae.
