Abstract: The transformation process between the trypomastigote and the amastigote was studied by Scanning Electronmicroscopy (SEM). The exclusive process from the trypomastigote to the amastigote was accomplished by incubating trypomastigotes in LIT medium while that from the amastigote to the trypomastigote, by rupturing parasitized fibroblasts after removal of free parasites from the fibroblast cultures infected with T. cruzi. Principally, the former process was initiated by twisting and folding of the parasite body, and the latter, by elongation of the body.
