Sleeping sickness is found in Africa only.

 

 

 

 

  • The tsetse fly gets the infection on sucking blood from the host, the parasite multiplies in the mid-gut of the insect and migrates to salivary glands. When the in­sect bites another host, then the trypanosomes enter the host and cause disease.
  • A trypanosomal chancre appears a week after the bite of the insect.
  • There is fever, lymphadenopathy and even myocardi­tis.
  • The lymph nodes are discrete, movable, rubbery, and non-tender

  • · Highly motile trypanosomes can be seen in fluid from the chancre and needle aspiration of Iymphnodes, bone marrow aspiration, centri­fuged CSF.
  • · In CSF of patients of HAT, there is increase in pressure, increase in protein and IgM, and in­creased mononuclear cells.
  • · PCR assay also detects trypanosomes.
  • Because HAT has limited geographic distribution, an appropriate history of exposure should be identifiable.
  • Several nonspecific laboratory findings may be associated with infection.
  • A definitive diagnosis of infection requires the demonstration of the parasite, usually from the blood, lymph node aspirate or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
  • Anemia is common and is thought to be due at least in part to immune-mediated hemolysis

    Hi, i was bitten by a tsetsefly in Nov. 2010. I started feeling headaches for about 2 weeks continuously. It stopped and now i feel some movements in my lower legs and feet. I saw different doctors and they all said what i’m feeling is psychological. I, however, feel that they probably haven’t encountered such symptoms before, hence, they are swerving the problem. Can i have any help from your end?

    • Hi, Mr. Eric,
      as you mentioned you think that you are bitten by testes-fly , and you got headache for 2 weeks, how can you be so sure that you are bitten by testes fly, there is not enough signs and symptoms for TRY­PANOSOMIASIS, there is you don’t mention any other then headache, and now you feel some movement in your feet, their may be other cause for that but in my opinion it’s not enough for signs and symptoms for TRY­PANOSOMIASIS, have you examined your CSF or any other Blood test report for confirmation of TRYPANOSOMIASIS.
