FILARIA ANTIGEN Test

FILARIA ANTIGEN Test

 

What is the FILARIA ANTIGEN Test?

FILARIA Antigen Test is used to identify microfilariae, a filarial larva found in infected mosquitoes, in the blood. Lymphatic filariasis is a condition in which microfilariae disrupt the lymphatic system's function. Because they circulate in the body during the night, a blood sample should be taken at that time. This test detects higher ant filarial IgG4 antibodies in the blood.

 

Grossly swollen limbs, pitting of the skin, and even swelling in the genitals are all symptoms of the infection in acute cases.

 

Filariasis, if left untreated, can develop into chyluria, hydrocele, lymphedema, and elephantiasis.

 

Why Done? 

  • When filaria symptoms occur, such as fever, chills, headaches, inflammation and swelling of the lymph nodes, and gradual swelling of the legs and genitals to unnatural proportions, it is time to seek medical help.
