The course of development of the lizard filaria has been worked out after experimental inoculation of infective larvae into non-infected lizards. The different developmental stages of the parasite are fully described. The site of development and the path of the larvae in the lymphatic system suggest analogies to human filariasis. The pathological lesions caused by the parasite are demonstrated and the mechanism of production of the lymphatic obstruction is discussed.
