Letter to Editor - Journal of Parasitic Diseases: Diagnosis and Therapy (2021) Volume 6, Issue 4


Toxoplasmosis is a parasite illness caused by the apicomplexan Toxoplasma gondii. Toxoplasmosis infections in adults generally have no visible signs. People may experience minor flu-like symptoms such as muscular pains and sensitive lymph nodes for a few weeks or months at a time. Eye issues may arise in a small proportion of persons. Congenital toxoplasmosis is a disease that can harm a kid if a woman becomes infected during pregnancy. Toxoplasmosis is disseminated mostly by the consumption of improperly cooked food containing cysts, contact with infected cat faeces, and transmission from an infected woman to her unborn child during pregnancy. Blood transfusions can occasionally transmit the illness. It does not transmit between people in any other way. However, it can infect most types of warm-blooded animals, including humans. Diagnosis is typically by testing blood for antibodies or by testing the amniotic fluid in pregnant women for the parasite's DNA.
