19 Wuchereria Diagnosis History Symptoms Microfilari a in blood Demonstration of microfilariae in blood PCR diagnosis
20 Microfilariae of Wuchereria bancrofti Microfilariae are seen in blood smears and are DIAGNOSTIC
21 blood microfilaria i 1 direct examination (thick or thin smear) 2 Knotts concentration technique 3 millipore filtration 4 antigen capture
22 Treatment and Prevention Diethyl-carbamazine and Ivermectin Kills adults and microfilariae Edematous limbs Pressure bandages Surgical removal of elephantoid tissue Elimination of mosquitoes. Protection of people from mosquitoes biting.
23 Causes Malayan filariasis Brugia malayi Distribution - Orient, South Pacific, and Southern Asia to India overlaps with Wuchereria bancrofti - but does not occur in Africa or South America
24 Brugia malayi Morphology and life cycle is similar to that of Wuchereria bancrofti
25 Brugia malayi Pathology - Adults live in lymphatic vessels of the arms and legs and cause elephantiasis in these regions

30 Adults of Onchocerca volvulus Skin nodule cut open to reveal adults coiled together Microscopic section showing adults and scar tissue reaction around them forming the nodule
31 Microfilariae of Onchocerca volvulus Unsheathed microfilariae occur in the skin, never the bloodsteam
32 Life Cycle of Onchocerca volvulus 1. Adults live in coiled masses encapsulated under the skin.
33 Life Cycle of Onchocerca volvulus 2. Females produce microfilariae - Microfilariae of Onchocerca NEVER invade the bloodstream.
34 Life Cycle of Onchocerca volvulus 3. Microfilariae in the skin are ingested by the black fly intermediate host, Simulium damnosum, when a blood meal is taken.
35 Life Cycle of Onchocerca volvulus - Nodules are most common below the waist in region of Africa. - Nodules are on the head and above the waist in Central & South America.
36 Life Cycle of Onchocerca volvulus 4. Parasites develop to J 3 s in the musculature of the black fly and migrate to the mouthparts. 5. J3 s are inoculated into the skin when black fly bites. Adults mature in a year Adults mature in a year within subcutaneous nodules.
37 Onchocerca volvulus Life Cycle Black fly Simulium damnosum
41 Pathology of Onchocerca volvulus ADULTS cause onchocercomas Nodules are about ½ -1 inch in diameter. Nodules are relatively benign and cause only some disfigurement.
42 Onchocerca volvulus Skin Nodules
43 Pathology of Onchocerca volvulus MICROFILARIAE cause 3 severe problems. This is the only filarial worm in which microfilariae are pathogenic! 1. Microfilariae in the skin cause severe dermatitis - skin becomes thickening, discoloration, and cracking. -leading to secondary bacterial infections -itching is so severe some people g p p have committed suicide
44 This woman has leopard skin and onchocercal skin lesions on both legs
45 Pathology of Onchocerca volvulus 3. Microfilariae invade the eye -blindness occur as microfilariae die in the eye - fibrosis causes clouding of cornea and aqueous and vitreous humors resulting in blindness - fibrosis of the eye is a slow development and most affected persons are adults over 40 years old!
46 Pathology of Onchocerca volvulus In many parts of Africa, the sighted young are responsible for leading the older blind adults.
47 Diagnosis of Onchocerca volvulus (1)Microfilaria in skin snips! - snip must be bloodless so as to not to confuse with microfilariae i that t may be circulating in the bloodstream. (2) Adult worms in excised skin nodule.

49 TREATMENT Ivermectin! Onchocerca volvulus
50 Simulium spp. The vector of onchocerciasis in the old and New Worlds.
51 An infected female blackfly takes a blood meal from a host. The hosts skin is stretched by the fly s apical teeth and cut by its mandible. Onchocerciasis is linked with fast flowing rivers where Simulium blackflies breed.

63 Heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis):
64 Pathology of Dirofilaria immitis PATHOLOGY caused by adult worms. First signs of infection involve exercise intolerance due to inadequate blood supply to lungs infected dogs cough, have shortness of breath, and tire rapidly. 2. Eventually the dog suffers congestive heart failureusually after a period of exercise.
65 Dirofilaria immitis PREVENTION - chemoprophylaxis 2 drugs are used: ivermectin (in Heartgard) and milbemycin 2 drugs are used: ivermectin (in Heartgard) and milbemycin oxime (in Sentinel and Interceptor)
66 Human Cases of Dirofilaria immitis HUMAN INFECTIONS of Dirofilaria immitis are rare. Larvae are killed by the host reaction and scar tissue nodules form in lungs around worms Symptoms are coughing and chest pain. In only 4 cases were adult worms recovered from the human heart. These were found incidentally at autopsy and were not related to the death of the patient.
