the Filarial round worm causes elephantiasis
The disorder elephantiasis is actually a group of disorders, all of which causes swelling to different parts of the body. Each disorder is caused by mosquito or worm bites.
the culex mosquito causes elephantiasis
Elephantiasis is caused by a microfilarial nematode (very small worm).
The three main causes of elephantiasis are Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and B. timori. With Wuchereria being the most common.
Elephantiasis is caused by infestation with parasitic worms.
Elephantiasis is a disease that causes thickening of the skin and tissue. Elephantiasis can cause certain body parts to swell to the size of a soccer ball or basketball.
Elephantiasis is usually caused by a blockage of the lymphatic system by threadlike filarial worms, Wuchereria bancrofti.
Three kinds of round worms cause elephantiasis filariasis: Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and Brugia timori
On September 20, 2007, scientists mapped the genome or genetic content of Brugia malayi, worm which cause elephantiasis (lymphatic filariasis). Elephantiasis generally results from obstructions of the lymphatic vessels. It is most commonly caused by a parasitic disease known as lymphatic filariasis. Alternatively, elephantiasis may occur in the absence of parasitic infection. This nonparasitic form of elephantiasis, known as nonfilarial elephantiasis or podoconiosis, generally occurs in the mountains of central Africa. Nonfilarial elephantiasis is thought to be caused by persistent contact with volcanic ash
There are several Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and B. timori all of these are transited by mosquito
Elephantiasis comes about in the presence of any of three thread-like worms, Wucheria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, or Brugia timori.
Elephantiasis or filariasis, is a parasitic infestation of nematodes. The three nematode species that infect humans and cause filariasis are Brugia malayi , Brugia timori , and Wuchereria bancrofti .
is elephantiasis contagious?
i have elephantiasis
Parasitic worms cause elephantiasis. Elephantiasis is a symptom of a number of different diseases.
This disease is caused when a parasitic worm infects the lymphatic system. The prognosis is not good as there is no cure and you are only able to stop the spread of the disease.
when the liver don't works well, swelling transfers to skin. so the liver is answer for this question.
