Bancroftian filariasis in Mayotte: evaluation of the importance of clinical complications

Mayotte, an island in the Comoros group, has long been an important focus of lymphatic filariasis. Transmission is by Culex quinquefasciatus and Anopheles gambiae. Adulticidal (since 1977) and larvicidal (since 1981) campaigns have been set up, and a mass chemotherapy campaign (6 mg/kg diethylcarbamazine) conducted at 4-month intervals was instituted in 1985. The microfilarial index has fallen continuously since then and the effect on the clinical aspects of filariasis was studied.
