Abstract

We describe a useful technique for removing filaria from the anterior chamber. In the case described, an immature female filaria approximately 15 mm in length was removed from the anterior chamber of a 32-year-old man in western Oregon and identified as a species of Dipetalonema. Features of four cases of filarial infection in the anterior chamber from the same geographic area are described. In three out of four cases, the worms were removed alive without difficulty by means of simple irrigation aspiration system.
