Chagas disease is also known as American trypanosomiasis. It is caused by a vector-borne  protozoa  and spread by contact with Trypanosoma cruzi infected feces of the triatomine assassin bug. The protozoan can enter the body via the bug's bite, skin breaks, or mucous membranes.
Infection can result from eating infected food and coming into contact with contaminated bodily fluids. The acute phase is usually asymptomatic.
The first symptoms are usually skin chancresunilateral purplish orbital oedemalocal lymphoadenopathies, and fever accompanied by a variety of other symptoms depending on infection site. The virus was first isolated from an outbreak in Tanzania in The disease mainly occurs in Africa and Asia.
Dracunculiasis Dracunculiasis is also known as Guinea-worm disease. There were cases of dracunculiasis ina decrease from cases in and a substantial decrease from 3, cases in Worms can be up to one meter long.
An eradication program has been able to reduce prevalence. Both versions involve an asymptomatic incubation period of several years.
In the cystic version, liver cysts cause abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting while cysts in the lungs cause chronic cough, chest pain, and shortness of breath.
In alveolar echinococcosis, a primary cyst develops, usually in the liver, in addition to weight loss, abdominal pain, general feeling of ill health, and signs of liver failure.
Alveolar echinococcosis is found in western and northern China, Russia, Europe, and northern North America. Yaws There are limited data available on the prevalence of yawsalthough it primarily affects children.

There are fewer than 10, cases currently. The disease is always fatal if untreated. The current forms of treatment are highly toxic and ineffective as resistance is spreading. It is diagnosed through an inexpensive serological test.
Leishmaniasis The three forms of leishmaniasis are visceral Kala-azarcutaneous, and mucocutaneous. Around 90 percent of mucocutaneous leishmaniasis occurs in Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru. Diagnosis can by made by identifying clinical signs, serological tests, or parasitological tests.
Leprosy There wereknown cases of leprosy in Marchandnew cases were diagnosed in It is curable if treated early. Leprosy has a 5—20 year incubation period, and the symptoms are damage to the skin, nerves, eyes, and limbs.
Lymphatic filariasis Lymphatic filariasis is also known as elephantiasis. Most people are asymptomatic, but have lymphatic damage.
Up to 40 percent of infected individuals have kidney damage. Onchocerciasis Onchocerciasis is also known as "river blindness". Rabies There are two forms of rabies: There are 60, deaths from rabies annually. Furious more common type rabies causes hyperactivity, hydrophobia, aerophobia, and death by cardio-respiratory arrest occurs within days.
Paralytic rabies causes a slow progression from paralysis to coma to death. It can be detected through tissue testing after symptoms develop.
Infection occurs when skin comes into contact with contaminated freshwater in which the snail that carry the parasite are living. The eggs that do not pass out of the body can become lodged in the intestine or bladder, causing inflammation or scarring.
Children who are repeatedly infected can develop anemia, malnutrition and learning difficulties.Area: This entry includes three subfields.
