A pregnant 38-year-old woman in New york, USA, gravida 6, who confessed to heroin abuse, was diagnosed as having Toxoplasma encephalitis and human immunodeficiency virus infection. Diagnosis was made by evaluation of computed tomographic results and Toxoplasma antibody titres. She was treated successfully with pyrimethamine (50 mg/day) and sulfadiazine (1 g orally every 6 h), and spontaneously delivered a normal 2590 g male infant at 38 weeks of gestation.
