Doença de Chagas congênita: avaliação imunocitoquímica do parasitismo em tecidos de feto macerado

In order to specijically stain the Trypanosoma cruzi amastigotes, the immunocytochemical peroxiIn order to specijically stain the Trypanosoma cruzi amastigotes, the immunocytochemical peroxidase anti peroxidase melhod was carried out in advanced macerated premature tissues of u case of human congenital Chagas' disease. The results have shown that the immunocytochemical method markedly improved the identijication o f the tissue parasitism when compared with the hematoxylin and eosin stain, even in advanced autolysed tissues.
