Toxoplasmosis-V1221

Toxoplasmosis
 
Toxoplasmosis
Toxoplasmosis is a disease of humans and animals caused by the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii. The biology of T. gondii is complicated, but the life cycle of the parasite begins with felids (cats, wild and domestic). Only felids can shed the infective form (oocyst) of the parasite in their fecal material.
