Development of Arizona Trypanosoma Cruzi in Mouse Muscle

View More View Less


Detailed study of mouse muscle experimentally infected with Arisona Trypanosoma cruzi reveals two types of development from the leishmaniform to the trypanosome stage; directly, by simple elongation, or indirectly, by flattening of the rounded leishmaniform body to form a transition stage whose cytosome partially separates and untwists, resulting in the elongate trypanoform parasite.
