Ocular Loiasis – Loa Loa

Ocular Loiasis - Loa Loa

I figured I’d post this in honor of my upcoming microbiology exam here in a few hours. The case can be reviewed here: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm1002020

The link also contains a video of the parasitic worm moving in the eye. Enjoy!
