Moreover, the recovery of an aDNA sequence and the possibility of genotyping parasites from human remains make it possible to reconstruct the early dispersion patterns of T. cruzi subpopulations. On the basis of these results, one may speculate that the current outbreaks of human T. cruzi infection, independent of triatomine domiciliation, are re-emergences of the ancient epidemiologic scenario of Chagas disease in Brazil. Paleoparasitological studies of Chagas disease may clarify the antiquity of this disease in the Americas through extraction and amplification of T.
