Organ transplants

As is the case with blood donations, organ transplants are also a possible route of transmission of Chagas disease.

Since the control measures for organ transplants are different in each country, people who have received organ transplants in Latin America or from a Latin American donor should, in case of any doubt, go to their doctor for a check-up.

A person who has Chagas disease and knows it can be an organ donor, but they must always inform the medical staff so that the appropriate decisions can be made.
