We describe a case of infestation by Dirofilaria repens in an immunocompetent female who goes to the emergency room for a feeling irritable left eye. It requires the surgical removal of the parasite and its identification by macroscopic examination, microscopic after clarification and after fixation, paraffin embedding and staining of PAS and Grocott.
