Microfilariae in a cytologic smear from cavernous hemangioma of the liver. A case report

Acta Cytologica
R AgarwalS P Barthwal

Abstract

Wuchereria bancrofti has been found in almost every tissue except the liver. Microfilariae were found in a hemangioma of the liver on fine needle aspiration in a 40-year-old female with pyrexia associated with hepatomegaly and a peripheral blood smear negative for microfilariae. Absence of microfilariae in a peripheral blood smear does not exclude filarial infection.

Anthelmintics (ASM)

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.

Cavernous Hemangioma

Cavernous hemangioma is a blood vessel defect or benign tumor that leads to leakage of blood to the surrounding tissues. This can occur in several organs including the brain, which can lead to seizures. Discover the latest research on cavernous hemangiomas here.
