Lymphatic filariasis is caused by the worms Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, and Brugia timori. The most common clinical presentation is hydrocele, with lymphedema and elephantiasis occurring less commonly. Among various imaging modalities, sonography is most commonly used for diagnosis and assessing treatment response. We report a case of a boy with painless swelling and low-grade fever in whom real-time ultrasonography depicted the presence of filarial dance sign in right epididymis.
