Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An unusual form of reagudization of Chagas' disease, from its indeterminate phase, was documented in an immunocompromised patient. Long-standing progressive visceral aggression due to extensive intracellular proliferation of T. cruzi manifested by severe isolated right ventricular failure and esophageal ulcerations. Antiparasite chemotherapy was effective in the control of the disease.
