Clinical Findings
  • In the early stage following a tsetse fly bite, a papule forms, which evolves into a nodule (mainly T. brucei rhodesiense) and finally into a painful chancre.
  • In the haematolymphatic stage, many symptoms (fever, headaches, joint pains and malaise) recur at regular intervals with the observed parasitaemia peaks
  • In the meningoencephalitic stage, there are sign and symptoms due to brain lesions (disturbed sleep patterns, insomnia, anorexia, nerve dysfunctions)
