Human toxoplasmosis and cat contact in Costa Rica

Human toxoplasmosis and cat contact in Costa Rica

American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 29(6): 1167-1180

Of 883 people aged between 15 and 26 years (mean 20.3) from 2 rural and 5 urban populations in Costa Rica, 61.4% were positive for antibody to Toxoplasma gondii by the dye test (titre more than or equal to 1:2). The antibody prevalence in people who admitted eating raw meat or raw eggs was similar to that of the general population, thus excluding meat and eggs as important sources of infection.
