Epidemiology of episodic adenolymphangitis: a longitudinal prospective surveillance among a rural community endemic for bancroftian filariasis in coastal Orissa, India



Epidemiology of episodic adenolymphangitis: a longitudinal prospective surveillance among a rural community endemic for bancroftian filariasis in coastal Orissa, India



Bmc Public Health 5: 50-50



Background: The epidemiological knowledge on acute condition of lymphatic filariasis is essential to understand the burden and issues on management of the disease. Methods: A one year long longitudinal prospective surveillance of acute adenolymphangitis (ADL) was carried out in rural population of Orissa, India. Results: The annual incidence of ADL per 1000 individuals is 85.0, and is slightly higher (P>0.05) in male (92.0) than in female (77.6).
