Caption: Swelling of a patient's left knee (right in picture) following a bite from a horsefly. The bite has triggered an allergic reaction, causing swelling and erythema. The allergen in this case is the saliva of the horsefly. Horseflies (family Tabanidae) are blood- drinking insects. The saliva contains an anti- clotting agent to enable the horsefly to drink freely.
