Filariasis or Filaria is caused by the bite of an infected mosquito belonging to the species called Culex.


The adult worms live in the lymphatic vessels and the females produce microfilariae which at night circulate in the blood. The mosquitoes on biting the infected individuals carry the microfilariae which develop into adult worms. If the same mosquito bites a healthy person, the worms are transmitted to him and the infection is spread.
