The Human African trypanosomiasis or sleeping sickness, a fatal and neglected tropical disease, is caused by two parasites Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense
. This disease is transmitted by tsetse fly (genus Glossina), a vector which is only found in tropical Africa, this explains the T.
However, it has been reported that the anaemia caused by the human infective Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense
and Trypanosoma brucei gambiense in rodents ranges between macrocytic normochromic to microcytic hypochromic anaemia .

The origins of a new Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense
sleeping sickness outbreak in eastern Uganda.
Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) cases are caused by the parasites Trypanosoma brucei gambiense and Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense
, which are indigenous to west and central Africa.
(2,3) There are two forms of illness: a more chronic infection caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense
(West African) and a more acute disease caused by Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (East African).
