Abstract

A female patient resident in Germany is described, who had developed dirofilariasis presenting as a hard subcutaneous nodule at the glabella. Dirofilaria repens was isolated after surgical removal of the skin lesion. She was treated with diethylcarbamazine (Hetrazan) for 4 weeks. Exposures related to infection with Dirofilaria repens are discussed.
