Congenital toxoplasmosis

Summary of Congenital toxoplasmosis
Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by Toxoplasma gondii. Infections with toxoplasmosis usually cause no symptoms in adult humans. Toxoplasmosis can be spread by eating undercooked food that contains cysts, exposure to cat feces, and rarely through blood transfusions. If infected during pregnancy, a condition known as congenital toxoplasmosis may affect the child.
