Abstract

In August 1984, a 6-year-old female Japanese cat, weighting 3.5 kg and kept in Yamaguchi City, was shown to have 7 eye worms on the conjunctiva, mostly in the conjunctival sac under the nictitating membrane. The cat developed no eye discharge, lacrimation, photophobia, conjunctivitis nor corneitis. All the worms were female and morphologically identified as Thelazia callipaeda.
