The second result is that sequencing of DNA from a limited number of skin snip specimens from Uganda suggests the presence of an organism closely related to Mansonella
Of these, 258 were Onchocerca volvulus infections, 124 were Mansonella
perstans infections, 29 were Loa loa infections, and 7 were M.
Similarities to Wuchereria, Brugia, Mansonella
, Dirofilaria, and Acanthocheilonema were lower, ranging from 75% to 80%.
Filarial species detected by direct methods were Mansonella
perstans (n = 13), Loa loa (n = 4), and Onchocerca volvulus (n = 1).

At the time of the Ugandan outbreak, Manson (11) believed that the disease was linked to Filaria perstans (now known as Mansonella
perstans), a blood-dwelling nematode of no clinical importance.
