Abstract

Dirofilariasis is a common filarial infection occurring in domestic and wild animals as a result of arthropod bites. However, it can be transmitted to humans after mosquito bites. Here, we report a case of a 54-year-old lady who developed an unilateral eyelid swelling secondary to Dirofilaria repens.
