Abstract

Abstract

A case of human subcutaneous dirofilariasis contracted in Ibiza, Spain is reported. An incomplete nematode extracted from the eyelid of a woman patient was identified on the basis of its anatomic and histologic characteristics as a nongravid adult female of the species . The subcutaneous location of the worm, together with the epidemiologic data, support this finding.
