American trypanosomiasis (Chagas' disease) is uncommon in Europe, but occurs frequently in South and Central America where it causes major problems. A case is presented of a 57 year old woman born in Venezuela who showed signs of chronic Chagas' disease after living 32 years in Denmark. The epidemiology, modes of transmission, clinical manifestations, diagnosis and treatment of Chagas' disease are described.
