Subcutaneous Human Dirofilariasis is an uncommon zoonotic infection caused by Dirofilariarepens. The reports of this infection in humans in India are limited, although increasingly being reported worldwide. We report a case of Dirofilariasis with subcutaneous presentation from the state of Meghalaya and to emphasize the importance of considering this entity in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with subcutaneous nodules.
