Relationships between localisation of head nodules and presence of microfilariae in the anterior chamber of the eye in onchocerciasis



Relationships between localisation of head nodules and presence of microfilariae in the anterior chamber of the eye in onchocerciasis



Bulletin de la Societe de Pathologie Exotique 71(4/5): 347-349



After examination of the results of 3 surveys conducted in Guatemala, West Africa and Venezuela, the author considers that the presence of microfilariae in the anterior chamber of the eye shows no clear relationship to the localization of head nodules.
