There are no clinical signs specific for trypanosomosis. The disease may be acute, sub-acute or chronic. Acute disease may be fatal after an illness lasting 2-6 weeks, or it may developed into the chronic phrase which may last for many months. In the acute form there is fever, congested mucous membranes, anorexia, lethargy, recumbency and often death. The chronic disease (the most common form) is characterized by emaciation, weakness, lethargy, anaemia, enlarged lymph nodes and subcutaneous (dependent) oedema.
