Possibilities and complexities in the diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis

, : Possibilities and complexities in the diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis. Journal of Parasitology and Applied Animal Biology 8(1): 27-46

This review discusses the diagnosis of lymphatic filariasis (Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, B. timori) and the merits and demerits of the different techniques: direct parasitological observation; antibody detection; antigen detection; DNA based diagnosis (in particular the polymerase chain reaction); ultrasonography; and magnetic resonance imaging.
