Breast Filariasis Diagnosed by Real Time Sonographic Imaging: A Case Report.

Sherwani P, Singhal S, Kumar N, Narula MK, Anand R, Pathania OP - Iran J Radiol (2016)

Bottom Line: A 30-year-old woman presented with a palpable subcutaneous nodule in the areolar region of the left breast.Sonomammographic examination revealed 2 cystic lesions showing typical "filarial dance" as vigorous twirling movement of multiple curvilinear echoes with mixed red blue color Doppler signals that was non-rhythmic, nonpulsatile, and the characteristic pulse Doppler trace due to irregular worm movement.Real time sonographic demonstration of these typical features is pathognomonic for filariasis, especially in endemic areas and treatment should be initiated without delay on the basis of ultrasound.

Sonomammographic examination revealed 2 cystic lesions showing typical "filarial dance" as vigorous twirling movement of multiple curvilinear echoes with mixed red blue color Doppler signals that was non-rhythmic, nonpulsatile, and the characteristic pulse Doppler trace due to irregular worm movement. Real time sonographic demonstration of these typical features is pathognomonic for filariasis, especially in endemic areas and treatment should be initiated without delay on the basis of ultrasound.

fig23513: A, Color Doppler sonogram shows mixed color Doppler signals due to color motion artifact. B, Spectral trace shows irregular pattern of worm movement.

Mentions: Color Doppler examination of the lesion revealed red, blue, and mixed color Doppler signals that were non-rhythmic, non-pulsatile, and rapidly changed in size and position (Figure 3A). Spectral Doppler trace showed the characteristic pattern of irregular worm movement (Figure 3B).
