AB  - INTRODUCTION:: Lymphatic filariasis (LF) is a public health problem in Haiti.
      Thus, the emigration of Haitians to Brazil is worrisome because of the risk for
      LF re-emergence. METHODS:: Blood samples of Haitian immigrants, aged >/=18 years,
      who emigrated to Manaus (Brazilian Amazon), were examined using thick blood
      smears, membrane blood filtration, and immunochromatography. RESULTS: : Of the
      244 immigrants evaluated, 1 (0.4%) tested positive for W. bancrofti; 11.5%
      reported as having received LF treatment in Haiti. CONCLUSIONS: : The
      re-emergence of LF in Manaus is unlikely, due to its low prevalence and low
      density of microfilaremia among the assessed Haitian immigrants.
