A friend of ours in Argentina has a 10 year old daughter who was apparently
infected with filariasis. She developped a unilateral leg edema. She had
several course of Ivomec and of a unreleased medication from Pfizer (?) I am
blanking on the name).
Almost a year later her leg is still edematous and a lymphogram has only
shown (surprise !) a blockage.

Do you know of someone knowlegable in tropical medicine for kids ?

Of course the parent (both MD) and done Medline searches but with little
success.

Many thanks for pointing in the correct direction.
