Lance A. Durden, Nancy C. Hinkle, in Medical and Veterinary Entomology (Third Edition), Murine Trypanosomiasis. Trypanosoma lewisi is the causative agent of murine trypanosomiasis in domestic rats throughout much of the world. It is principally transmitted by the Northern rat flea (N. fasciatus) (Fig. ) and the Oriental rat flea (X. cheopis) (Fig. ). The genus (or subgenus), species (or subspecies) may be further defined by adding the surname of the person who first described it and the year when the description was published (e.g. Trypanosoma congolense Broden, indicates that Broden in published the first description of this important pathogenic trypanosome of cattle in tropical. Trypanosome, any member of a genus (Trypanosoma) of parasitic zooflagellate protozoans belonging to the order Kinetoplastida. Adult trypanosomes are mainly blood parasites of vertebrates, especially fishes, birds, and mammals. Most species require an intermediate host (often an insect or a leech). Trypanosoma cruzi (Fig. ) consists of oval and elliptical organisms, 10 to 30 µm in diameter, with a characteristic kinetoplast and flagellum in addition to the usual nucleus and cytoplasmic organelles. At the base of the basal body of the flagellum is a kinetoplast, which consists of a curved, electron-dense structure containing DNA.

Sleeping sickness, also called African trypanosomiasis, disease caused by infection with the flagellate protozoan Trypanosoma brucei gambiense or the closely related subspecies T. brucei rhodesiense, transmitted by the tsetse fly (genus Glossina). Sleeping sickness is characterized by two stages of illness. In the first stage, infected persons. Trypanosoma [tri″pan-o-so´mah] a multispecies genus of protozoa parasitic in the blood and lymph of invertebrates and vertebrates, including humans; most species live part of their life cycle in the intestines of insects and other invertebrates, the typical adult stage being found only in the vertebrate host.

A trypanosome is long and pointed and possesses a flagellum. The flagellum arises at the front, or anterior, end of the parasite and curves back to form the edge of a long, undulating . African trypanosomiasis, also known as African sleeping sickness or simply sleeping sickness, is an insect-borne parasitic disease of humans and other animals. It is caused by protozoa of the species Trypanosoma brucei. Humans are infected by two types, Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (TbG) and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (TbR). TbG causes over 98% of reported : Trypanosoma brucei spread by tsetse flies. Trypanosoma synonyms, Trypanosoma pronunciation, Trypanosoma translation, English dictionary definition of Trypanosoma.
