Encephalitis by Sequencing of 28S rRNA Gene
The psychological realm included feelings generated from the discovery, the coping and trend of the disease, the self-perceived quality of life and the influence of religious beliefs before the chagasic
TNF is associated with disease progression to cardiac failure in chagasic
patients, and genetic polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with protection during infection (27-29).
Lipomatous metaplasia of myocardial scar was observed in 68% of ischemic heart disease, 37% of chronic valvulopathy, 26% of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, 15% of chagasic
patients, and 55% of aneurysm walls.

area of Chile," The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, vol.
It is noteworthy that the current disarticulation and instability in the surveillance and control of triatomines, particularly in northeast region of Brazil, are due to the decentralization of Brazilian endemic control programs and the discontinuation of National Health Foundation (Fundacao Nacional de Saude--FUNASA) regional office, which complicate the structural and operational capacity of the municipalities with respect to the responsibility of the epidemiological surveillance of chagasic
endemia  and the control of other endemic parasites (e.g., schistosomiasis and visceral leishmaniasis).

cardiomyopathy, from acute to chronic: is this mediated by host susceptibility factors?," Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene, vol.
The patient, an ex-smoker, with systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) and heart failure (Chagasic
cardiomyopathy with implanted pacemaker) had been submitted to coronary angioplasty.
Hence, that represents a huge problem for the health system for not providing healthcare services to many of those asymptomatic chagasic
individuals, impacting, in several cases, on healthcare.
