Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  Six additional cases of Chagas' disease have been discovered in Panama since March 1, 1935, including 2 which terminated fatally.
  • 2.  In Panama the disease is probably fatal in a high percentage of cases in the very young, but seems to have few or no effects on adults.
  • 3.  The disease as it has thus far been encountered in Panama does not present the clinical picture as it has been described from other localities.
  • 4.  There is probably a higher incidence of Chagas' disease on the Isthmus of Panama than has been heretofore suspected.
