Abstract
It is known that Trypanosoma congolense and Trypanosoma vivix cause economically the most important forms of trypanosomiasis of cattle in Africa. T. congolense is the species most prevalent in East Africa and T. vivax the most common species in West Africa. Considering the magnitude of the problem, where for example in West Africa 70 per cent of the million cattle slaughtered annually in the southern regions are infected with all combinations of T. vivax congolense and Trypanosoma brucei, remarkably little is known about the disease processes which the various species cause. A review of the available literature shows that relatively little information is available on the diseases produced by T. Vivax and T. congolense.
