African Trypanosomiasis overview

African trypanosomiasis (also known as African sleeping sickness) is a parasitic infection caused by a species of parasite, Trypanosoma brucei, which is transmitted to humans through the bite of the tsetse fly. Symptoms include anxiety, drowsiness during the day, fever, headache, insomnia at night, mood changes, sleepiness (may be uncontrollable), sweating, swollen lymph nodes all over the body, weakness, and a swollen, red, painful nodule at the site of the fly bite. Treatment includes anti-protozoal agents.
