Abstract: Objective: To contribute to the discussion on the research findings that indicate the American Trypanosomiasis and Chagas disease can be sexually transmitted in humans. Methods: A review of the literature about the routes of transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi parasites and to evaluate the dispersion of Chagas disease now in five Continents. Main finding: The epidemiologic profile of American Trypanosomiasis, yet considered a neglected disease of the poor people of Latin America, changed over time. A family-based study demonstrated the blood protozoan T. cruzi can be transmitted sexually from infected males and females to naïve mates. Conclusion: Evidence that Chagas disease can be sexually transmitted coupled with the migration of individuals with Chagas disease to previously nonendemic countries, and as well of travelers to endemic countries, has public implication that requires improved screening of blood supplies and prenatal care to prevent congenital spread.
