Abstract

Chagas' disease is an infectious disease that affects millions of people in Latin America and is increasingly seen outside endemic areas. A substantial number of patients develop gastrointestinal disorders secondary to lesions of the enteric nervous system. The purpose of this article is to review the current knowledge about gastrointestinal manifestations of Chagas' disease, including disorders other than the well-known gross dilations of esophagus and colon.
