Tissue invasion by Mansonella ozzardi in a patient with adenocarcinoma






Chest 101(2): 592-592

Tissue invasion by Mansonella ozzardi in a patient with adenocarcinoma

A 65-year-old white man was admitted to a hospital in Argentina with cough, dyspnoea, breathlessness, cyanosis, and jugular regurgitation. Left pleural effusion was detected. Microfilariae were found in pericardial and pleural fluid. Because a computed tomographic scan of the thorax showed bilateral lung nodules, open lung and pericardial biopsy specimens were obtained. A recent lung infarct was found, with an eosinophilic and mononuclear inflammatory infiltrate in the interalveolar septa.
