Kucing pembawa parasit Toxoplasmosis mengakibatkan minda anak jadi lembap

Causes

By Mayo Clinic Staff
Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) is a single-celled parasitic organism..  Because it reproduces only in cats, wild and domestic cats are the parasite's ultimate host.

When a person becomes infected with T. gondii, the parasite forms cysts that can affect almost any part of the body — often your brain ..



Definition
By Mayo Clinic Staff

Toxoplasmosis (tok-so-plaz-MOE-sis) is a disease that results from infection with the Toxoplasma gondii parasite, one of the world's most common parasites.

For infants born to infected mothers and for people with weakened immune systems, toxoplasmosis can cause extremely serious complications.

If you are pregnant or have lowered immunity, certain medications can help reduce the infection's severity. The best approach, though, is prevention.

In babies

If you become infected before or during your pregnancy, you can pass the infection to your baby (congenital toxoplasmosis), even if you don't have signs and symptoms yourself.

Your baby is most at risk of contracting toxoplasmosis the earlier in your pregnancy the infection occurs, the more serious the outcome for your baby.

Many early infections end in stillbirth or miscarriage. Children who survive are likely to be born with serious problems, such as:

Seizures
An enlarged liver and spleen
Yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes (jaundice)
Severe eye infections

Only a small number of babies who have toxoplasmosis show signs of the disease at birth. 

Often, infected children don't develop signs and symptoms — including hearing loss, mental disability or serious eye infections — until their teens or later.
