I suppose you meant elephantiasis? it is chronic swelling of a limb, mostly the lower limbs as a result of a blockage of the lymphatic drainage system bey filaria worm. The most common cause is wuchereria bancrofti. It cannot be cured unless at a very early stage which is rarely the case. However, treatment can prevent further aggravation of symptoms. Hope you find this helpful. Dr. Ditah, MD

Vaccine is safe. Mild malaise and fever can be seen. And elephantiasis can cause lymphatic obatruction and lymphedema of legs. Legs are swollen and look like legs of elephant. Hit thanks if you like my answer.
