Abstract

Filariasis is a major health problem in many tropical countries including India. Most commonly affected organs are lymphatics of lower limbs, retroperitoneal tissue, spermatic cord, epididymis and breast. Despite high incidence, it is infrequent to find microfilariae in fine needle aspiration cytology smears and body fluids. Microfilaremia is usually detected in blood or skin specimens. Cytological examination with FNAC is an investigation of choice especially in patients with evident swelling with difficult clinical diagnosis. We present a case of spermatic cord microfilariasis in a 32 years male presented with right scrotal swelling with dancing filarial sign on ultrasonograpghy, while the peripheral blood smear was negative for the organism.
