For Researchers. The New England Journal of Medicine: Research & Review Articles on Disease & Clinical Practice. The Mazzotti reaction following treatment of oncho... [Am J Trop Med Hyg. 1985] - PubMed result. To determine definitively whether or not the severity of the Mazzotti reaction was correlated with infection intensity, as determined by skin snip quantification, 21 infected Ghanian patients were evaluated during 7 days of treatment with 200 mg/day of diethylcarbamazine. Serial blood, urine and skin biopsy samples were collected during the progression of the Mazzotti reaction. Hypotension, fever, adenitis and pruritus were all correlated with infection intensity in these patients while arthralgia and tachycardia were not.

Peripheral blood eosinopenia and neutrophilia also correlated with intensity of infection and appeared to reflect the accumulation of degranulating eosinophils around "mobilized" microfilariae that migrated from the dermis to the epidermis after diethylcarbamazine (DEC).
