  6. 6. LYMPHATIC FILARIASISThe term “LYMPHATIC FILARIASIS” coversinfection with three closely related nematodeworms – W. bancrofti, B. malayi and B. timori. Allthree infections are transmitted to man by thebites of infective mosquitoes. All three parasiteshave basically similar life cycles in man. 6

  12. 12. MODE OF TRANSMISSIONFilariasis is transmitted by the bite of infectedvector mosquitoes. The parasite is depositednear the site of puncture. It passes through thepunctured skin or may penetrate the skin on itsown and finally reach the lymphatic system. Thedynamics of transmission depends upon theman mosquito contact (e.g. infective biting rate). 12
  13. 13. 1). Incubation period 8 to 16 months 2). Clinical manifestations a) lymphatic filariasis b)occult filariasis 13
  14. 14. 1. LYMPHATIC FILARIASIS: a). Asymptomatic microfilaraemia b). Asymptomatic microfilaraemia c). Stage of acute manifestations d). Stage of chronic obstructive lesions2. OCCULT FILARIASIS: The tem occult or cryptic filariasis refers to filarial infections in which the classical clinical manifestations are not present and Mf are not found in the blood. 14
  15. 15. FILARIA SURVEY The size of the sample to be examined I a filaria survey varies with the type of survey, whether it is a routine survey or survey for evaluation.1. Mass Blood Survey * The thick film * Membrane filter concentration method * DEC provocation test2. Clinical Survey3. Xenodiagnosis4. Entomological Survey 15

  18. 18. Control measures• CHEMOTHERAPY: a). Diethylcarbamazine b). Filaria control in the community (i). Mass Therapy (ii). Selective treatment (iii). DEC medicated salt (iv). Ivermectin 18
  19. 19. 1. VECTOR CONTROL: a). Antilarval measures (i). Chemical control (ii). Removal of Pistia Plant (iii). Minor environmental measures b). Anti-adult measures c). Personal Prophylaxis 19

  21. 21. LEISHMANIASIS“Leishmaniasis are a group of protozoal diseases caused by parasites of the genus Leishmnania, and transmitted to man by the bite of female phlebotomine sandfly.” they are responsible for various syndromes in human beings1. kalaazar or visceral leishmaniasis (VL) 2. cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) 3. mucocutaneous leishmaniasis (MCL) 4. anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ACL) 5. zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) 21
  22. 22. AGENT FACTORS: a). Agents b). Reservoirs of infectionHOST FACTORS: a). Age b). Sex c). Population Movement d). Socio-economic status e). Occupation f). Immunity 22
  23. 23. ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS: a). Altitude b). Season c). Rural Areas d). Vectors e). Development projectsMODE OF TRANSMISSION:From man to man by the bite of female phlebotominesandfly or P. argentipes 23
  24. 24. INCUBATION PERIOD1to 4 months range is 10 days to 2 yearsClinical Features: 1). Kala Azar (VL) 2). Cutaneous Leishmaniasis 3). Mucocutaneous LeishmaniasisLaboratory diagnosis: 1). Parasitological diagnosis 2). Aldehyde test 3). Serological tests 4). Leishmanin (Montenegro) test 5). Haematological findings 24

  27. 27. SCABIES• Discovered – 1687• Sarcoptes Scabiei / Acarus Scabiei – very small• The female parasite burrows into the epidermis where it breeds and causes the condition known as scabies / itch.• Species of germs – infest animals like dogs, cattle & horse. 27
  28. 28. 28
  29. 29. DIAGNOSIS OF SCABIESThe main diagnostic features of scabies are:a). The patient complains of itching which is worse at night.b). Examination reveals follicular lesions at the affected sitec). Secondary infection leads to crusted papules and pustulesd). The diagnosis is probable if the other members of the household are affectede). Confirmation of the diagnosis may be made by searching for the parasite in the skin debris under microscope. 29
