Abstract

American trypanosomiasis or Chagas disease is caused by the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi and is found only in the Western Hemisphere. Human African trypanosomiasis is found only on the African continent and is caused by other members of the genus Trypanosoma, Trypanosoma brucei rhodesiense (in east and southern Africa) and Trypanosoma brucei gambiense (in west and central Africa). Congenital transmission may occur with either American or African trypanosomiasis. While cardiovascular manifestations can occur with all of these species of trypanosomes, it is much more common with American trypanosomiasis, i.e., Chagas disease, due to T. cruzi.
