Pathology of human African trypanosomiasis with reference to experimental African trypanosomiasis and infections of the central nervous system



Pathology of human African trypanosomiasis with reference to experimental African trypanosomiasis and infections of the central nervous system



British Medical Bulletin 41(2): 169-174



The pathology of African trypanosomiasis in man is reviewed in a sequential approach. The overview is complicated by the very large number of publications, most of them dealing with only one aspect of the disease. Despite this prolific research, no single explanation for the pathogenesis of this complex disease has emerged. Trypanosomes, with their antigenic variation, have topographical preferences within the host and within particular organs.
