Trypanosomiasis overview

Trypanosomiasis, also known as sleeping sickness in humans and nagana in animals, is a parasitic disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Trypanosoma. There are two main forms of the disease, each caused by different species of Trypanosoma. African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) is transmitted by tsetse flies and is predominantly found in sub-Saharan Africa. It is caused by two subspecies of the parasite: Trypanosoma brucei gambiense causes the chronic form of sleeping sickness, responsible for over 90% of reported cases, which progresses slowly and can last for years without symptoms; Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense causes the acute form, where symptoms appear within weeks to months and can lead to severe complications if untreated. American Trypanosomiasis (Chagas disease), endemic in Central and South America, is caused by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. Chagas disease is primarily transmitted by triatomine insects (also known as “kissing bugs”) that feed on blood. The parasites can also be transmitted through blood transfusions, organ transplants, or from mother to child during pregnancy.
