Chagas Disease is an illness caused by a protozoa called Trypanosoma Cruzi. Seen more commonly in Latin America, T Cruzi enters a person via the triatomine insect commonly know as the “kissing bug” since the bites occur near the mouth. At first, infected persons may have fever, malaise and tachycardia. The bite from the kissing bug may cause an eye swelling called Romana sign. As the illness progresses to the chronic phase, heart arrhythmia and congestive heart failure develop. Patients may also develop blood clots and an enlarged colon. There is no vaccine but good preventive measures include insecticides and nets at bedtime.
