BACKGROUND Causative agents. Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), also known as sleeping sickness, is caused by single-celled parasites, Trypanosoma brucei, which are transmitted to humans by infected tsetse flies. Two sub-species of T. brucei cause different forms of the disease. T. b. gambiense causes chronic infection, whereas T. b. rhodesiense generally causes a more acute infection. The parasites first develop in the blood, lymph and peripheral organs (stage 1), then spread to the central… Expand
