Caption: Chagas disease life cycle. Diagram showing the life cycle of the flagellate protozoan parasite Trypanosoma cruzi, the cause of Chagas disease. The disease is spread through the faeces of triatomine bugs. Early symptoms of infection include fever, muscle pain and enlarged lymph nodes. If the infection remains untreated the parasite causes intestinal and heart disorders, which can be fatal.
