Abstract: Dirofilaria immitis is the causative agent of canine heartworm, a well known parasitic cardiopulmonary disease of dogs and cats, that can also affect man. When this nematode infects man the disease is difficult to diagnose, but even so there are more than 200 cases of human pulmonary dirofilariasis reported throughout the world. {P}
