GARCIA-OROZCO, Víctor H.; GARCIA-SANCHEZ, Daniel; LOPEZ-FLORES, Juan F.  e  SANCHEZ-MATA, Ricardo. Pediatric sigmoid volvulus due to Chagas disease. Cir. cir. [online]. 2019, vol.87, n.5, pp.568-571.  Epub 29-Nov-2021. ISSN 2444-054X.  https://doi.org/10.24875/ciru.18000478.

Exposure and infections by Trypanosoma cruzi are the fourth cause of loss of potential life years between parasitic and infectious diseases. We describe the case of a 11-year-old patient with intestinal occlusion, surgically treated with intestinal volvulus, the surgical specimen is sent to histopathology reporting Chagasic megacolon. The age range of presentation is a challenge in the absence of nonspecific symptoms. There is no pediatric statistical data that define trypanosomiasis in a latent or chronic state and will be diagnosed in adult stages due to the physiopathological alterations that they will present.
