why after the filaria adult worms die you are prone to develop lymphoedema, instead one should get rid of the worm and the disease.

when one take medicine for filaria, it only kill the micro filaria in the blood and seems there is no lymphoedema as long the adult worm live in the lymphatic system. But lymphodema start once the adult worm live its lifespan and dies. Why?

Thanks.
