[Dracunculus medinensis (guinea worm disease): a rare cause of calcification (author's transl].

[Article in German]

Abstract

Tangled whorly calcifications were seen in the abdominal subcutaneous tissues of a negro patient from Africa. The differential diagnosis of such calcifications - rarely observed in Europe - includes a variety of parasities. In this patient, dracunculus medinensis (guinea worm disease) was the cause.
