CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of Chyluria due to lymphatic Filariasis which was neglected by the medical practitioners for past one year.
Genital bancroftian filariasis may manifest in several ways including hydrocoele, lymph varix, lymph scrotum, filarial penis or elephantiasis of the genitalia and chyluria.
The most common cause of chyluria is lymphatic filariasis, a parasitic disease considered endemic in tropical and subtropical regions.
Chyloptysis, chyluria, chylous pericardial effusion, pneumoperitoneum, acute abdomen, and lymphedema have also been described.
Some promise has been shown by extracts/products of some plants of which the stem bark of Streblus asper was used clinically under the name "filacid" to treat lymhoedema, chyluria and other condition of the filarial disease but no claims were made of any direct effect on either mf or adult worms (9,10).
