Hello Glety,

Toxoplasma / toxoplasmosis infection is caused by the protoziaT gondii parasite. Transmission of toxoplasma through contact with cat feces or soil affected by feces of infected cats, undercooked or raw meat and contaminated water.

In healthy people, toxoplasma infection generally does not cause severe complaints, sometimes complaints can occur in the form of flu symptoms, such as fever, muscle aches, fatigue, swallowing pain, and enlarged lymph nodes. Usually if symptoms appear, the symptoms will improve in 6 weeks.

However, toxoplasma infection becomes dangerous if it affects pregnant women because it can cause oremature birth control, fetal death in the womb, miscarriage, and if the newborn can cause several symptoms such as yellowish skin, enlarged liver and spleen, convulsions, easy bruising, anemia, hydrocephalus, microcephalus, hearing loss, and mental retardation.

In people with immune disorders, toxoplasmosis infection can also cause more severe complaints such as difficulty speaking, impaired vision and hearing, seizures, dizziness, weakness, chills, shortness of breath, to decreased consciousness.

Thus there are no special characteristics that indicate someone is infected with Toxoplasma. To find out whether or not infected with toxo, the doctor can do anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting tests with blood tests (can be done TORCH test), and MRI if necessary.

Management of toxoplasmosis depends on the patient's condition, for example by observation, or with drugs such as pyramycycin, pyrimethamine, sulfadiazine, trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole.

If you are worried, you can consult a doctor so that further tests can be done to determine whether there is a toxo infection or not. To prevent toxoplasmosis, you can do the following tips:

Use gloves when cleaning cat litter or touching soil. Take care of pet health. Wash hands before and after cleaning cat litter and cooking. Make sure food ingredients are washed. Avoid consumption of undercooked or raw meat. Hope it can help you,

Thank you
