In brief: Parasite Infection

Infection with toxoplasma gondii can cause no symptoms or a range of problems; worse in those with weakened immune systems.
The disease can affect the brain, lung, heart, eyes, or liver.If symptoms are present, t is treated with antibiotics and a medicine also used for malaria. If a baby is born with the infection, congenital changes occur so pregnant women are checked for this infection.
