Trypanosoma sp in peripheral blood.
Trypanosomiasis which is spread by tsetse flies in a rather interesting way! After the fly bites someone, it defecates near the bite site and that is where this protozoan parasite can be found. The bite is painful and people smear said parasite into the wound when scratching it. The trypanosomes then spread to the nervous system, causing lethargy, tremors and confusion, and eventually coma and death.
