Trypanosma mnemonic

This one will help you in having a fair idea about the linking of Trypanosoma species with the diseases caused and the vectors associated.

1. T. cruzi- American Chaga's disease.

Americans have big fat freeways on which they love to cruise in their cars. Also,if you are into automobiles, you can remember the car 'Cruze'
from Chevrolet, the American carmaker.

The vector is reduviid(kissing) bug. Do I need to say more?!

2. T.brucei-  This one is full of the phonetic 'sa' in it- T. brucei causes sleeping sickness with the vector being the tsetse fly!

That's all!
