Toxoplasmosis, a zoonotic disease of humans and most animals with a worldwide distribution, is caused by the opportunistic intercellular parasite T. gondii. The main routes of transmission in humans are ingestion of tissue cysts in undercooked or oocyst contaminated food and through placental transmission to the fetus. When the infection occurs in pregnant women, it can cause severe disease symptomatology including toxoplasmic encephalitis, blindness, fetal abnormalities, abortion and even stillbirth. Previous reports showed that 39% of fetuses showed subclinical or clinical infection when the pregnant women acquired the infection for the first time.
