, : The prevalence of Toxoplasma antibodies among students in faculty of girls, Al-Azhar University. Journal of the Egyptian Society of Parasitology 16(2): 395-401

100 female students at Al-Azhar University, Egypt, were tested for T. gondii antibodies by ID, IFAT and IFAT-IgM and 31, 24 and 29.2% were found positive in the 3 tests resp. Lymphadenopathies were observed in 64 students. No lesions of the fundus of the eye were found. Minor ocular lesions (corneal opacity and pterygeum) were observed in 5. The titre of 1:16 obtained by the IFAT-IgM suggests that these students did not have active toxoplasmosis, but should be nevertheless monitored.
