Resumen

La enfermedad de Chagas afecta cerca de 20 millones de personas y es una patología restringida al continente americano. Esta enfermedad de carácter crónico es causada por el parásito Trypanosoma cruzi del cual, en la actualidad se han definido dos poblaciones: Trypanosoma cruzi I y Trypanosoma cruzi II, con características particulares relacionadas con la distribución geográfica y el tipo de manifestaciones clínicas.

Keywords
