Acute Chagas disease in a returning traveler.
Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2012 Dec; 87(6):1038-40.AJ

Abstract

Acute Chagas disease is rarely recognized, and the risk for acquiring the disease is undefined in travelers to Central America. We describe a case of acute Chagas disease in a traveler to Costa Rica and highlight the need for increased awareness of this infection in travelers to Chagas-endemic areas.
