Gautret, P; Clerinx, J; Caumes, E; Simon, F; Jensenius, M; Loutan, L; Schlagenhauf, Patricia; Castelli, F; Freedman, D; Miller, A; Bronner, U; Parola, P (2009). Imported human African trypanosomiasis in Europe, 2005-2009. Euro Surveillance, 14(36):1-3.

Abstract

Physicians in Europe are likely to see more African trypanosomiasis cases because of the increasing popularity of travel to Africa. In this paper the literature on imported cases in Europe, since 2005 is reviewed. Because of the high mortality risk associated with acute Rhodesian trypanosomiasis, travellers should be informed about preventive measures and the early disease manifestations.
