False-colored scanning electron microscopy image of innate immune cells and the parasite Trypanosoma brucei (purple; length: 15 micrometers) in an infected mouse liver. The parasite is transmitted between mammalian hosts, including humans, by the bite of infected tsetse flies and is responsible for human sleeping sickness, a lethal disease that is a serious problem in Africa. See page 463.
