Private hospitals and clinics treating Filariasis

Filariasis is a chronic infection that is caused by the worm Wucheria bancrofti and Brugia malayi. These parasites attack the lymphatic system, especially those found in the lower extremities, causing swelling and eventually disfiguration. It is also called elephantiasis where the legs of the patient become like an elephant’s. Treatment includes the use of anti-parasitic medications to kill the worms. Surgery may be recommended in patients with severely disfigured extremities.
