DOLF Project Ophthalmologists Publish Short Case Report

DOLF project ophthalmologists Michael Gyasi and Augustine Hong have published a short case report of a patient with ocular onchocerciasis. This includes a photo and a very interesting video with motile microfilariae in the anterior chamber of the eye (open access, see “supplements”) that people may want to use for teaching or social mobilization. Microfilarial clearance after ivermectin treatment was more rapid and complete from the skin than from the eyes in this heavily infected patient.
