Neglected tropical diseases: Buruli ulcer and sleeping sickness

| |

Published on :

Buruli ulcer is a chronic infection that affects the skin, sometimes the bones, and which can cause permanent deformity. The mode of transmission of this disease is still unknown: it is therefore difficult to prevent it. Sleeping sickness, or African trypanosomiasis is linked to a parasite, transmitted by tsetse flies, in some twenty countries in sub-Saharan Africa. . It affects animals like humans and if left untreated, it can be fatal. The number of cases has dropped sharply over the past 10 years, but vigilance is required to confirm this progress.

What do we know about these two neglected tropical diseases? Where is the research on the subject? How to make the correct diagnosis? What treatments exist or are being developed?
