Elephantiasis




Elephantiasis is the final chronic stage of a filariasis caused by the presence in the blood and lymph of a parasitic nematode worm. It is characterized by the thickening and hardening of the skin, together with an enormous enlargement of the part affected, usually the lower extremities. Its proper medical name is “neurofibrome.”
