TRANSMISSION (4)
T. b. gambiense/rhodisiense

• Vector: Tse-tse fly (Common MoT)
• Mechanical transmission: blood-sucking insect
• Mother to child transmission
• Blood transfusion
• Accident infection (pricks)

11

what stage of african trypanosomiasis

• Characterized by swelling/ small papule from

Stage 1: Hemolymphatic Stage

12

– swelling of lymph nodes at posterior neck region or at the cervical vertebrae

what stage of african trypanosomiasis

• Sleeping sickness stage (blood brain barrier is crossed)

Stage 2: Chronic meningoencephalitic

14

what stage of african trypanosomiasis
Signs and symptoms: personality change, mood swings, insomnia, daytime lethargy, environmental withdrawal, secondary infection (E.g. Pneumonia)

Stage 2: Chronic meningoencephalitic

15

• Specimen for african trypanosomiasis diagnosis

: blood, CSF, lymph node aspirate

16

lab diagnosis for african trypanosomiasis
Gold standard

microscopy

17

treatment
first stage, for T. brucei rhodisiense
-urinary tract, allergic reactions (Side effects?)

• Suramin

18

treatment
first stage, for T. brucei gambiense
-side effects more tolerated

Pentamidine

- most important prevention and control for african trypanosomiasis
