Abstract

Summary

A total of 5,214 patients from the Sanoquelle District of Liberia, registering with the outpatient department of the Ganta Dispensary during the 10 years 1944–1953, were treated for trypanosomiasis. This number represents roughly 10 per cent of all patients visiting the Dispensary during this period. Trypanosomes were found in the lymph node juice, the blood, or in both, in 43 per cent of the patients. Information is presented on the age and sex distribution of the trypanosomiasis cases, and the relative incidence of infection in the different areas is discussed.
