Abstract

Bancroftian filariasis is a tropical disease transmitted by mosquitoes that most often causes lymphadenitis. This article reports on a breast nodule due to Wuchereria bancrofti in a woman living in New Caledonia. The diagnosis was done by fine needle aspiration, which showed several microfilariae and avoided surgical treatment.
