False-colored SEM image (43.5 x 37.6 microns) showing Trypanosoma brucei parasites (blue) in intricate interaction with an adipocyte (grey) in the ear dermis of a mouse bitten by an infected tsetse fly. The dermis represents the site where tsetse flies inoculate African trypanosomes and from which the host is systemically colonized to cause sleeping sickness. In the dermis, a transient parasite subpopulation remains that is interacting with adipocytes. Caljon et al.
