Toxoplasma gondii - Toxoplasmosis

Toxoplasmosis is a zoonosis caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii, an obligate intracellular parasite which infects both birds and mammals, including felines. Infection may cause no obvious symptoms in adults, but may be serious in pregnant women. Serology testing is the primary diagnostic method; acute and convalescent antibody testing is recommended to confirm the presence of disease.
