Heart and spleen weights in mice chronically infected with T. cruzi after oral transmission. Mice were infected with either metacyclic or bloodstream T. cruzi trypomastigotes (MT, BT) by i.p. injection, oral gavage (g) into the stomach or deposition in the oral cavity (b). Hearts (a) and spleens (b) from mice in which chronic infections were established were weighed at necropsy 4 months post-infection.
