[Congenital toxoplasmosis following infection occurring late in pregnancy.]

Abstract : Monthly serological screening of non immune pregnant women is recommended for prevention of congenital toxoplasmosis. However, this screening is often interrupted before delivery. We report a case of congenital toxoplasmosis following infection occurring late in pregnancy. This documented case highlights the need for a final routine serological test, 2-3 weeks post-partum for all seronegative pregnant women. In fact, the screening of congenital toxoplasmosis cases allows the early administration of specific treatment that avoids later severe complications such as chorioretinitis.
