About Carlos Chagas
Carlos Justiniano Ribeiro Chagas, or Carlos Chagas (Portuguese pronunciation: ˈkaʁlus ˈʃaɡɐs; July 9, 1879, Oliveira, Minas Gerais, Brazil – November 8, 1934, Rio de Janeiro), was a Brazilian physician. He discovered Chagas disease, also called American trypanosomiasis in 1909, while working at the Oswaldo Cruz Institute in Rio de Janeiro. Chagas’ work is unique in the history of medicine, because he was the only researcher so far to describe completely a new infectious disease: its pathogen, vector (Triatominae), host, clinical manifestations and epidemiology.
