Filariasis - Elephantiasis - My neighbor has had elephantiasis for 10 years, but we are still not?

... sure why. He was in Vietnam 40 years ago, but my reading says it can't lie dormant that long. And he doesn't walk on volcanic ash (non-filarial). He had brain surgery about a year before it started, but how can that cause elephantiasis???
