 en Sylvatic Vectors Invading Houses and the Risk of Emergence of Cases of Chagas Disease in Salvador, State of Bahia, Northeast Brazil
Artur G Dias-Lima & talo A Sherlock


During the last twenty years, several adults of Triatoma tibiamaculata infected with Trypanosoma cruzi have been spontaneously caught by inhabitants, inside their houses in the new habitational district of Pituau of Salvador, Bahia. In this communication the authors call attention to the necessity of studies about the possibility of occurrence of new human cases of Chagas disease, to clarify the obscure origin of some positive blood donors in Salvador.
