The Chagas’ disease is a disease caused by the Trypanosoma cruzi, it is transmitted between the vectors by the triatomines, represents a serious health problem in Mexico, [Hidalgo]. Aim: describe the analysis of the discourse as part of a qualitative case study with emphasis on the interaction of the host and with the vectors triatomines from the narrative experience with this transmitter agent. Methodology: a case study was made from the perspective of the qualitative methodology through the narrative of the experience and the interaction of a person with this insect in the Community of Coyolapa, Municipality of Atlapexco, Hidalgo, Mexico. Results: 21 year old feminine person remembers that when she was 6 years old it stung her leaving a zone with a purple-reddish color. Rubbing it felt itchy and it hurt. Called my attention the fact that they alimented themselves with blood. When I found them and pushed them and the blood came out of it in a reddish tone and in others with a purple tone. They had different shapes, some long and full, others small with less blood and others exploded of the fullness, the insects came out every third day. Analyzing this situation I can say that every third day they had to eat. Conclusion: This person has been in contact with the insect, the health care services are incapable to share the results with the habitants and it seems to not have vigilance and/or efficient programs of intervention and control of the vector.
