Abstract

Summary and Conclusions

  • 1.  Two cases of human toxoplasmosis are discussed. These increase the total number proven by morphologic demonstration of the parasite to thirty-nine.
  • 2.  One represents the second case of toxoplasmosis recorded in a still-born infant and reconfirms the concept that intra-uterine infection occurs.
  • 3.  A possible relationship between atypical erythroblastosis fetalis and congenital toxoplasmosis is postulated.
  • 4.  Attention is directed to the apparent high incidence of toxoplasmosis in Panama which seems to be a center of relatively high endemnicity.
  • 5.  The current clinical classification of toxoplasmosis has been slightly modified.
  • 6.  Chick embryo antigen was used successfully to demonstrate inapparent toxoplasmosis in the parents of an infected stillborn infant.
