Resumen

PIREZ, María Catalina et al. Update Workshop on Vertical Transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi. Remarks and recommendations agreedon the FinalCommittee. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2017, vol.33, n.4, pp.96-103. ISSN 0303-3295.

Once vectorial transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi disappeared and transfusion-transmission was controlled, vertical infection constitutes the only relevant transmission mode in our country. The fact that there are chronically infected adults leads to the risk of congenital Chagas Disease, which may occur in more than one generation with the same ascendancy. Indeed, constant human migration results in the risk of congenital transmission being present throughout the country, thus exceeding the endemic areas initially defines by the presence of domicile vector. Therefore, vertical transmission of Trypanosoma cruzi does not respect borders or generation boundaries and its sub-diagnosis has resulted in the emergence of several cases. Thus, reality leads to the remarks and recommendations that follow below, with the purpose of promoting the right control of this parasitosis.

Palabras clave : Vertical infectious disease transmission; Trypanosoma cruzi.
