Abstract
Hornby (1929, 1932 and 1952) and Hornby and Bailey (1931 and 1(33) concluded from their studies that in cattle Trypanosoma Congolense was strictly a plasma parasite which localized in the small blood vessels. Particularly in the capillaries of the skeletal muscles. They regarded the anaemia which accompanied infection to be primarily responsible for the disease process. However, Fiennes (I 946a, b and 1970) postulated that the morbid condition was not due to anaemia alone but was also the result of multiple thrombosis and infarction in various tissue and organs.
