    Elephantitis

    «
    »
    Most commonly seen in limbs and male genitalia, Elephantiasis is a disease that causes the thickening of skin and the underlying tissues, causing the affected body parts to swell to abnormally large sizes. The disease is carried by microscopic, parasitic worms transferred by mosquitoes. Once present in the body, a chain of reactions can lead to the lymph system to shutting down, causing the swelling characteristic of the disease.

    There is no cure, per se, for Elephantitis, nor is there a vaccine currently available. Treatments include prescription drugs, rigorous washing of the affected ares, binding in elastic bandages, and in some cases, surgery.
