Microfilarie of W. bancrofti were detected by fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) in a subcutaneous cystic swelling of the left forearm in a 30 years old female. Haemogram revealed 12% eosinophils. However, consecutive three night blood samples did not reveal microfilaria. Thus, FNAC was helpful in diagnosing an unsuspected case of filariasis without microfilaraemia.
