Figure 1: An excisional biopsy of the subcutaneous nodule on the left shoulder revealed several sections of degenerated nematode like worms with the presence of pseudocoelom in a fibrous capsule surrounded by eosinophilic lymphoplasmacytic granulomatous reactions, 100x magnification (A). Transverse section of the worm revealed a thin rough-cuticle nematode with irregular spacing of the longitudinal ridges approximately 300-350 μm in diameter. It has flat well-developed broad muscle cells and contains two lateral cord nuclei (asterisk), two uterine tubes (U) with developing cells inside and one intestine (I) (B).
