Abstract
Toxoplasmosis is a parasite infestation in which the definitive host is the cat. In healthy adults. most cases are asymptomatic and usually require no treatment. However, the primary infection in pregnant women can cause congenital toxoplasmosis to the baby. Therefore, pregnant women with no history of infection should avoid cat feces, and soil - which may be contaminated with cat feces - should be cleaned thoroughly and meat should be cooked well because it may contain tissue cysts. This article reviews the toxoplasmosis and the management during pregnancy.
Key Words: Toxoplasmosis, Pregnancy, Prevention
