Brugia is a genus for a group of small roundworms. They are among roundworms that cause the parasitic disease filariasis. Specifically, of the three species known, Brugia malayi and Brugia timori cause lymphatic filariasis in humans; and Brugia pahangi and Brugia patei infect domestic cats, dogs and other animals. They are transmitted by the bite of mosquitos.
• Male adult worms measures between 23 mm in length by um in width. 6. Microfilariae • B. malayi microfilariae measures um in length and um in width and have a round anterior end and a pointed posterior end. In that year, based on the study of adult worms, the genus Brugia was established to designate the “malayi” group, including B. malayi, which is a parasite of primates, including humans and cats. Although only about half the size, adult worms closely resemble those of W. bancrofti. Females are about 55 mm long; males, about 23 mm.

Introduction. Brugia malayi is a roundworm nematode, one of the three causative agents of lymphatic filariasis in humans. Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, is a condition characterized by swelling of the lower limbs. The two other filarial causes of lymphatic filariasis are Wuchereria bancrofti and Brugia timori, which differ from Brugia malayi morphologically, .
Lymphatic filariasis continues to be a major health problem in tropical and subtropical countries. A macrofilaricidal agent capable of eliminating adult filarial parasites is urgently needed. In the present study, we report the antifilarial activity in the extract of stem portion of the plant Lantana camara. The crude extract at 1 g/kg for 5 days by oral route killed % of the adult Brugia. The reason for alteration in the migratory pattern of Brugia adult worms following vaccination is unclear. While speculative, Damian [ 27 ] suggested several possible explanations as to why this may occur which include: immune or inflammatory factors present in immune animals blocking normal chemoreceptors, the disruption of chemotactic.
Brugia malayi. The distribution of B. malayi is very similar to that of W. bancrofti. However, cases are concentrated in Asia, including South China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, and South Korea. Other differences between B. malayi and W. bancrofti is the vector and reservoir. We are reporting a case of an eye lesion caused by an adult Brugia malayi. The patient was a 3-year-old Chinese boy from Kemaman District, Terengganu, Peninsular Malaysia.
