Through tachyzoite dissemination, the parasite will lodge in a wide variety of tissues in the secondary host, in which large numbers of cysts that are rich in bradyzoites are produced. The secondary hosts are commonly humans, rodents, birds, crustaceans, domestic animals, and practically all other warm-blooded animals, which explains why consumption of raw or undercooked meat can contaminate other hosts with bradyzoites from tissue cysts.

Authors' contributions

Ingestion of sporozoites occurs mainly through eating poorly washed fruits or vegetables, doing gardening, coming into contact with children who were playing on the ground or on sand, and so on [1]. Data in the literature consistently draw attention to the importance of proper guidance regarding the commonest means of becoming infected with T. This high amount was due mainly to the congenital complication resulting from vertical transmission of the parasite to the fetus [4].

This seems to occur as a function of the increase in the mass of the placenta, thus increasing the tissue available for tachyzoites to invade.

On the other hand, the increase in the volume of the placenta also contributes towards increasing the quantity of cysts rich in bradyzoites, which implies a greater risk of fetal infection in cases of reactivation of the pathological condition.

However, the congenital complications become greater with earlier infection during pregnancy [5]. Serological Diagnosis Investigation of IgG and IgM levels should be incorporated into the prenatal routine for the commonest infections and for teratogenic infections, including rubella, cytomegalovirus, and toxoplasmosis.

Diagnoses of acute or progressive toxoplasmosis infection are based on detection of its specific antibodies, with the aim of making an early diagnosis of maternal seroconversion and instituting appropriate treatment.

This is extremely important for preventing vertical transmission of T. Findings of toxoplasmosisspecific IgM indicate occurrences of acute infection, although these antibodies may be present in the maternal serum from one week to 18 months after the date of invasion by the parasitic tachyzoites. Specific IgG appears in the maternal serum between one and two months after the initial infection. In this light, it is clear that it is absolutely impossible for clinicians to define the starting time of the acute infection based only on the presence of IgG and IgM.

The IgG avidity test is the laboratory resource currently accepted for the diagnosis of the approximate time when the initial infection occurred.

This measures the affinity of IgG for binding to the antigens of T. A Mexican study on pregnant women showed that there was no correlation between IgM levels and the IgG avidity test results.

Thus, it was demonstrated in that study that the IgG avidity test is useful for inferring the infection phase and assisting in managing toxoplasmosis during pregnancy [14].

However, in practice, all the antibodies discussed Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Infectious Diseases above only allow conclusions consisting of suppositions and probabilities. A prospective study assayed IgG avidity for toxoplasmosis among pregnant women who presented with IgM positive for T. Fifty The PCR performed on the amniotic fluid or performed at birth was positive in the cases of nine patients with low IgG avidity. Among these nine patients, only three presented with congenital toxoplasmosis.

None of the pregnant women with high or threshold avidity presented positive PCR results in the amniotic fluid or congenital toxoplasmosis.

There were no diagnoses of congenital toxoplasmosis among the patients with negative PCR results in the amniotic fluid. Thus, it was concluded from that study that using IgG avidity in association with PCR on the amniotic fluid was important for diagnosing congenital toxoplasmosis [15].
