Orbital dirofilariasis

Dirofilariasis is a zoonotic infestation with nematodes of the Dirofilaria species. Apart from pulmonary and cardiovascular manifestations; periocular, intraocular as well as orbital involvement have been described. Natural hosts to these parasites are domestic and wild carnivores like dogs, raccoons, foxes, and so on. Transmission occurs through a vector, namely Culex, Aedes or Anopheles mosquitoes. Humans can be accidental hosts and represent a dead end for the lifecycle of the worm. We present the case of a 61-year-old male patient in Tamil Nadu, India, presenting with orbital dirofilariasis, whose computerized tomography characteristics mimicked lymphoproliferative disease.
