perstans nematodes were responsible of all filarial infections; in addition, 3 patients were infected by Loa loa eyeworms.

perstans: report of a case at the University Hospital of Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso].
Algumas especies da familia Simuliidae apresentam competencia vetorial para transmitir especies de nematoides dos generos Onchocerca, Mansonella
, Splendidofilaria e Dirofilaria, motivo pelo qual apresentam grande importancia medica e veterinaria.
In Central as well as South US, as well as some Caribbean islands, attacking midgets are the vectors of filarial worms in the category Mansonella
. These bloodsuckers create infection in human beings that generates dermatitis as well as skin sores since the mature worms lie in the skin.
Culicoides species have also been implicated in the transmission of certain pathogens to humans, such as Mansonella
nematodes, Leishmania flagellates and Oropouche virus, among others (Mellor et al.
Nematode species infecting the skin include Gnathostoma and the filarial species, Loa loa, Onchocerca volvulus, Mansonella
streptocerca and Dirofilaria spp .
Five species of filarial parasites have been reported in Nigeria, namely Wuchereria bancrofti, Onchocerca volvulus, Loa loa, Mansonella
perstans and M.
Most (tissue-dwelling) filariases (apart from a few blood-dwelling species such as Mansonella
perstans which cause little harm), including onchocerciasis, loiasis and bancroftian filariasis, cause distinct pathologies including characteristic and extensive skin lesions (in long-standing disease).
Simuliid blackflies (Diptera: Simuliidae) and ceratopogonid midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) as vectors of Mansonella
ozzardi (Nematoda: Onchocercidae) in northern Argentina.
El rol de vector de los ceratopogonidos en las America es bien conocido hasta el presente solo para el caso de Mansonella
ozzardi (Manson), una filaria parasita del hombre (7).
Of these, 25 patients were infected with Mansonella
ozzardi, two with Wuchereria bancrofti, and two with both species.
