Infinite Chagas’ disease

A synthetic exposition of different factors involved in the theme of Chagas disease is made, from its presumed point of origin, based on information that goes back to remote times, a fact that is hidden in the haze of time and in the history of humanity, recalls the subsequent great discovery of American trypanosomiasis made by Carlos Chagas and expresses a brief analysis about it today, some statistical considerations in particular and projecting a thought about the longed-for search for an end point in the existence of the mentioned disease, since it seems to be lost in the infinite future of the times.
