We do not have a clear exposure time for this patient, which is likely to have been within 2-3 years before her hospitalization, although we have reported a case-patient with an exposure [greater than or equal to] 29 years prior to illness onset; the emerging scientific consensus is that trypanotolerance may exist among some infected patients, leading to delay in diagnosis and premature confidence of disease elimination (8,9).
