Darwin's illness.


Darwin's chronic ill health began after 1838. By his own account he had been exposed to Triatoma infestans, a vector of Chagas' disease, and his symptoms were compatible with Chagas' disease. The case for rejecting a diagnosis of Chagas' disease is reviewed; however, the weight of evidence favors this diagnosis, as originally suggested by Saul Adler.
