The first case of human subcutaneous dirofilariasis in the Marche region (Central Italy) is described. It was caused by Dirofilaria repens and localised in the abdominal wall of a 23 years old university student from Pesaro. The presence of many histological sections of the nematode in strong regression, suggests that the death of the parasite occurred inside the nodule many months before the surgical intervention.
