PMID 21994197

Abstract

Filariasis is a global health problem commonly seen in tropics and subtropics. Microfilariae has been reported in cytological specimens from various sites but is an unusual finding from sediments of centrifuged normally voided urine samples. This highlights the presence of adult worms in the lymphatics and thus helping in prompt decision to start antihelminthic treatment besides providing surgical treatment for chyluria.
