Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An adult worm was isolated from the left upper eyelid of a man, eight years after he had left an area in which L loa is endemic. We described his case in order to draw attention to some differences between reported features of the disease in areas in which the worm is endemic and in areas in which it is not.
