Abstract:
Chagas disease is a rare condition but with an increasing incidence. Megacolon is a known sequelae. Surgical management remains the only disease modifying treatment option; with variable long-term success. We highlight an interesting case to emphasize attention to this rare condition as a differential diagnosis in any patient presenting with massive intestinal dilatation.
