Elephantitis is a disease that is typically characterized by the thickening of the skin and underlying tissue of the legs and male genitalia. The word "Elephantitis" is a commonly mispronounced and misheard word; the medical suffix "itis" commonly refers to an irritation of inflammation. Thus, the word "Elephantitis" would mean "inflammation of the elephant." The correct medical term is Elephantiasis, with the suffix "iasis" referring to a process or condition.

This is caused by mosquitos our other blood sucking parasites, the parasites get in threw them and block your drains in your body causing them to back up and swell up with fluid.pressure wraps on the affected area helps to squeeze out the fluid but you have to keep doing it all the time. Put tight pressure wraps on the affected area at night and then take them off during the day this will cause the swelling to go down greatly but it will always come back so you have to always keep at it!
