 en SHORT COMMUNICATION - Trypanosoma evansi check for this species in other resources Isolated from Capybara ( Hidrochaeris hidrochaeris check for this species in other resources )
Karina Muñoz & Amanda Chávez


A study was conducted to determine the morphological and biometric characteristics of Trypanosoma check for this species in other resources isolated from 50 capybaras animals, raised in captivity in the Peruvian Amazon. Trypanosoma was found in 14 blood samples using the microhaematocrit, wide drop, and Giemsa-stain methods and T. evansi was identified through morphological details in all 14 positive samples (the subterminal kinetoplast, the developed undulating membrane, and a long free flagellum were used for the identification of the agent).
