Chagas Disease Serology (S American Trypanosomiasis)

About this test

Trypanosoma Antibodies are produced by the body in response to a parasitic infection called Chagas disease.

Chagas disease is caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, a parasite related to the African trypanosome that causes sleeping sickness.

Chagas disease has two phases -- acute and chronic. The acute phase may have no symptoms or very mild symptoms.

Symptoms of Chagas Disease

  • Fever

  • General ill feeling (malaise)

  • Swelling of one eye

  • Swollen red area at site of insect bite

After the acute phase the disease goes into remission. No other symptoms may appear for many years. When symptoms finally develop, they may include:

  • Constipation

  • Digestive problems

  • Pain in the abdomen

  • Swallowing difficulties
