Successful treatment of loiasis with diethylcarbamazine in low dosage

Successful treatment of loiasis with diethylcarbamazine in low dosage

West African Medical Journal, 1: 4, 174-180

Stones records 21 cases of loaiasis in Europeans treated with hetrazan in doses between 1 mg. and 2 ing. per kg. body-weight, three times daily for seven days, except two who received 4 mg. In one patient there was a recrudescence of symptoms a month after treatment. The remainder appeared completely cured, the follow-up period varying from six months to two years. Admission to hospital was only necessary in one case. Six others showed mild reactions.
