  American trypanosomiasis, or Chagas disease, is caused by the protozoan parasite, Trypanosoma cruzi. Sixteen to eighteen million people are currently infected with this organism, deaths are attributed to the disease each year. Infection with T. cruzi is life-long, and % of persons who harbor the parasite chronically develop cardiac and 5/5(1).

Trypanosomiasis. Trypanosomiasis is almost exclusively a disease of tropical regions, with Trypanosoma cruzi causing Chagas disease in Latin America and Trypanosoma brucei causing human African trypanosomiasis, or ‘sleeping sickness’, in East and West Africa, leading to significant overlap with the HIV epidemic.

The vector for African trypanosomiasis is theTsetse fly (figure 1) and the distribution of the disease parallels the distribution of the vector (figure 4). The symptoms of African trypansomiasis depend on host and the sub-species of trypanosome.

In T. gambiense infections there is massive stimulation of immune system and complement-mediated. The book’s most alarming omission is of any reference to American trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease, caused by the trypanosome species Trypanosoma cruzi).

African trypanosomiasis, also known as African sleeping sickness or simply sleeping sickness, is an insect-borne parasitic disease of humans and other animals.

It is caused by protozoa of the species Trypanosoma brucei. Humans are infected by two types, Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (TbG) and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (TbR).

The clinical course of human African trypanosomiasis has 2 stages: the first is the hemolymphatic stage in which the parasite multiplies in subcutaneous tissues, lymph, and blood; once the parasite crosses the blood-brain barrier and infects the central nervous system (CNS), the disease enters the second stage, known as the neurologic stage.
