Diethylcarbamazine and human loiasis

Diethylcarbamazine and human loiasis

New England Journal of Medicine 320(5): 320-320

A. Jaccard et al. respond to the report on loiasis and chemoprophylaxis with diethylcarbamazine by Nutman et al. (New England Journal of Medicine (1988) 319, 752-6), stating the risk of anaphylactic reactions and encephalopathy when using this drug for treatment of people in west and central Africa, who have carried filariae for many years. They report the case of a patient who had lived in the Congo in 1980 and had no symptoms until 1988, when adult microfilariae were observed.
