A commercially available IHAT detected T. gondii antibodies in 225 (69%) of 324 cats in Beirut, Lebanon. The IgG-IFAT detected antibodies in 226 (70%). There was agreement (in antibody titres) between the 2 tests in 235 (72.5%) of the cats. In 43 (13.3%) of sera the titres were greater in the IHAT (than in IFAT) and in 46 (14.2%) they were greater in the IFAT. In most sera the discrepancy was only one dilution.
