dc.description.abstract Acanthocheilonema reconditum is a blood sucking microfilarial parasite of zoonotic importance. It has a wide distribution among the world’s continents and can cause cutaneous and subcutaneous problems. This is the first recorded case reported in Malaysia of A. reconditum in a dog, during a routine blood evaluation taken for an export quarantine evaluation at a private veterinary hospital. Incidental skin lesions were present. This species of microfilaria should be considered based on its geographic distribution as a differential for itching and erythema in a dog and due to its zoonotic significance. en_US
