Medical → Surgery for elephantiasis of the right lower extremity

Elephantiasis is a disease that is characterized by the thickening of the skin and underlying tissues, especially in the legs and genitals. Elephantiasis generally results from obstructions of the lymphatic vessels. It is most commonly caused by a parasitic disease known as lymphatic filariasis.

Lymphatic Filariasis is a parasitic and infectious tropical disease, caused by three thread-like parasitic filarial worm Wuchereria bancrofti transmitted by mosquitoes.

No, but it enlarges by over-nourishment the soft tissues until all resemblance to humanity is lost. Surgery can remove this ugly flesh. Another matter is removing this damn worm from the face of the earth. More than half of all species of life are parasitic and exterminating them would make all life healthier.

The worms that cause this disease are usually transmitted by mosquitoes.

This grotesque disease doesn't seem to occur in the USA (I HAVE seen 2 people here with it,poss. immigrants). Maybe the required host mosquito can't take our climate. App. the tropics are a disease pool.
