Abstract

Human dirofilariasis is an unusual zoonotic infection (transmitted from animals to humans) presenting as a subcutaneous nodule. Occasionally it involves the eye. The parasite is transmitted to humans by mosquitoes. Presentation in infants is extremely rare. A rare case of subcutaneous dirofilariasis of the eyelid in a 7-month-old infant is reported.
