Microfilaria Antigen

Microfilaria Antigen

Filariasis is a painful condition caused by filariae, thread-like roundworms. 

Microfilaria - countless microscopic worms produced by adult filaria worms once lodged inside the lymphatic system - are commonly found in the body. Microfilaria antigen tests establish the absence of filaria worms when low quantities of microfilaria are detected in lab testing.

The microfilaria antigen is a protein released into the bloodstream by the filaria worms. Unlike other methods of diagnosing filariasis, the antigen test can be done on any day or night. This test does not prove a current infection because the antigen is not identified in the blood until there are dead microfilariae in the body.

Why done? 

If your doctor suspects you have filariasis symptoms, they will request this test.

The majority of people with filariasis exhibit no symptoms at all. However, some individuals may have the following symptoms:
