Mansonella ozzardi: a neglected New World filarial nematode

Abstract: Mansonella ozzardi (Nematoda: Onchocercidae) is an understudied filarial nematode, originally described by Patrick Manson in 1897, that can be transmitted by two families of dipteran vectors, biting midges (most of them members of the genus Culicoides) and black flies (genus Simulium). With a patchy geographic distribution from southern Mexico to northwestern Argentina, human infection with M. ozzardi is highly prevalent in some of the Caribbean islands, along riverine communities in the Amazon Basin, and on b… Show more

“…The individual Mansonella species are diagnosed based on their morphological characteristics and geographic distributions . Human infections with M. ozzardi are only found in the Americas, including Brazil and in the Caribbean Islands . Most human mansonellosis is asymptomatic but occasional unspecific manifestations as fever, arthralgia, headache, cold lower extremities, lymphadenopathy, and itchy cutaneous rashes can occur .…”
