Pathology Poster – Human African Trypanosomiasis (Sleeping Sickness)


Human African Trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness, is a disease caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense or Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense.

Humans are the main reservoir of both forms.    

These hemoflagellate protozoa are transmitted by the bite of various species of Glossina, the tsetse fly.
