An account of 17 years of study of African trypanosomiasis (Trypanosoma gambiense) in children aged 0 to 6 years. A review of 227 cases

From 1968 to 1984, 227 children aged 0 to 6 years were treated for trypanosomiasis at the General Hospital at Fontem, Cameroon, an area hyperendemic for T. gambiense. 46 were < one year old, including 7 neonates with congenital infection (as demonstrated by the presence of T. gambiense in blood and/or CSF). Many symptoms diagnostic of trypanosomiasis in adults were absent and the nervous system became rapidly involved - 217 of the children were in phase 2 of sleeping sickness.
