Diagnosis: Chagas Disease

Pathology: A consequence of infection by the parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, carried by the Triatomine, or \'kissing bug\'. Patients with a high parasite load can suffer extreme enlargement of several organs, including the esophagus, colon, and heart, leading to myriad digestive issues and cardiac conduction abnormalities. Treat promptly with antiparasitics.
