Calcifications.: One may see fetal intracranial hyperechogenic foci or calcifications and ventricular dilatation on prenatal ultrasound, and these are poor prognostic signs. Intrahepatic densities, increased thickness and hyperdensity of the placenta, ascites, and rarely pericardial and pleural effusions have also been observed. Fetal demise and poor fetal growth are not as likely. ...Read more
Could any one tell is there any cure for toxoplasma infection? And waht are the things we can do to have healthy immune system?
No cure needed,,,: This is an infection you can get from almost anywhere. Cats are the main host, and they get it from contact with the soil, so humans can get it from them and the soil also, as well as at birth. But our immune system takes care of it so no therapy is needed, unless one gets immunocompromised, like with aids or an organ graft.

I did my 36w ultrasound and found left fetal renal pelviectasis with 7.7mm. What causes it?Does my son need test for any infection such as toxoplasma?
Incidental finding: As the kidneys form the central collecting area may appear large on prenatal ultrasound. This is during a time when most kidney functions are done by mom/placenta. Within the first 4-6 weeks after birth this finding often disappears as the kidney begins its normal work. It would need a follow-up ultrasound after birth but I wouldn't assume something bad. It is not an infectious process. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Some of the test only look for a few of the bacteria and don't measure them all. ...Read more
Help plz! Can primary koch's infection in children develop even if it is not transmitted by another person?
Koch's infx/TB: Tuberculosis just doesn't develop - you catch it from someone who is infected. It is only transmitted human to human, so you need to be exposed to someone who either has an active case or is a carrier. Many people worldwide are unaware they are infected, are asymptomatic carriers. That's why when someone is diagnosed with TB, everyone around them they've had contact with need to be evaluated. ...Read more
