Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 65 year old male with known hypertension and hypercholesterolemia sought medical attention because of a three month history of skin swelling on his upper back. Histopathology and molecular techniques were employed and identified an organism in the Onchocerca genus. This represents a very uncommon example of cutaneous infection by a zoonotic Onchocerca species.
