Sheathed microfilaria

" LBW "


  • Loa loa
  • Brugia malayi
  • Wuchereria bancrofti


LBW is the abbreviation for Leg Before Wicket which is one of the ways to get a batsman dismissed in cricket. And quite like the sheath for these microfilaria, the players protect their legs using leg guards (cricket pads).
