The haematology and histopathology ofTrypanosoma congolense infection in cattle

Part 3: Discussion and conclusions
  • Dennis C. Naylor


The experimental findings are discussed as a whole in relation to the findings of other workers. The conclusion is drawn that the development of a primary anaemia of exceptional character complicated by haemodilution, plays a very important part in the pathogenesis ofT. congolense infection in cattle.
