Abstract:   (609 Views)

Background & Objective: The history of infection is confirmed by serological tests and the incidence and severity of congenital Toxoplasma infection depend on the gestational age at the time of maternal infection. A precise serological diagnosis is important in the management of toxoplasmosis, and timely treatment prevents the complications of the infection. This study aimed to manage a case of acute toxoplasmosis during pregnancy and its results.
Case Report: In the present study, a pregnant woman was diagnosed with acute toxoplasmosis by considering the positive result of antibodies specific to Toxoplasma gondii and was treated based on the principal treatment that prevented congenital toxoplasmosis in her fetus.
Conclusion: Preventing acute Toxoplasma infection is very effective during pregnancy. Timely treatment can prevent the fetal and neonatal complications of toxoplasmosis.
