The shortage of suitable organ donors for transplantation has stimulated the use of organs from donors with transmissible infections such as Chagas disease in noninfected recipients. A case is described of liver transplantation from an anti-Trypanosoma cruzi-positive donor to a noninfected recipient who showed favorable evolution despite not having undergone preemptive therapy.
