According to guidelines from the European Society of Dirofilariosis and Angiostrongylosis (ESDA), Dirofilaria repens infections typically appear in humans near the eyes - "eyelids and under the conjunctiva (in such a case the worm can be easily observed, sometimes actively moving), subcutaneous tissues (nodules) in the chest wall, upper and lower limb, neck and in other body regions" such as the genitals.
The treatment for a Dirofilaria repens infection is actually quite simple, as the worm will simply have to be surgically removed. The woman made a full recovery after the procedure.

The worms, generally found in certain parts of Europe, Africa and Asia, are known to be as long as 170 millimeters and can thrive for 10 years, as per the CDC.
