Abstract The distribution of peripheral fibrosis due to chronic dirofilariasis and the distribution of recent peripheral pulmonary lesions associated with dead filariae following adulticidal therapy was assessed to determine if individual lobes were more affected. Lobar preference for the right caudal lobe was apparent for the recent but not the chronic lesions. The distribution of dead filariae within the pulmonary arterial tree significantly favoured the right caudal lobe. Disease due to dirofilariasis was more evident in the arteries supplying the right lobes than the arteries of the left lobes. Copyright
