Analytic morphometry of the Trypanosoma cruzi (Bolivia strain) forms found in the intestine of Rhodnius prolixus



Analytic morphometry of the Trypanosoma cruzi (Bolivia strain) forms found in the intestine of Rhodnius prolixus



Memorias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz 87(1): 159-161



Sixteen morphometric parameters of a Bolivian strain of Trypanosoma cruzi from the gut of Rhodnius prolixus were studied by planimetry using the IBAS-I (Image Basic Analytic System). 11 lots of 5 nymphs were allowed to feed on infected mice. The number of parasites ingested/insect was calculated to be 104. Intestines of infected insects were dissected 28 days after feeding. The total number of parasites in the whole gut averaged 56 304/nymph.
