Zoonotic Brugia infections in North and South America

American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 40(6): 638-647
Zoonotic Brugia infections in North and South America
Nine new zoonotic Brugia infections, 8 acquired in the USA and 1 in Brazil, are described. In each, a single worm was found in histological sections of lymph nodes or lymphoid tissues. In those from North America, 5 of the 8 worms were females, all were infertile, and only 3 were alive at the time the tissues were excised; all of the patients were male. A dead female worm was collected from a Brazilian male patient.
