Abstract

We present a case report of periocular Loa loa. The key feature of L. loa distinguishing it from other human filarial parasites are cuticular bosses, which are presented in images from a light microscope and a scanning electron microscope. The cuticular bosses could be divided into three subtypes not previously described.
