Abstract
A case of dirofilariasis in a Norwegian man is reported. The causal agent was identified as Dirofilaria repens Railliet et Henry, 1911. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report from a Scandinavian country on dirofilariasis caused by Dirofilaria repens. The infection was probably acquired in Majorca four years before it was diagnosed in Molde, Norway.
