Toxoplasma gondii infection and cerebral toxoplasmosis in HIV-infected patients



Toxoplasma gondii infection and cerebral toxoplasmosis in HIV-infected patients



Future Microbiology 4(10): 1363-1379



Cerebral toxoplasmosis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among HIV-infected patients, particularly from developing countries. This article summarizes current literature on cerebral toxoplasmosis. It focuses on: Toxoplasma gondii genetic diversity and its possible relationship with disease presentation; host responses to the parasite antigens; host immunosupression in HIV and cerebral toxoplasmosis as well as different diagnostic methods; clinical and radiological features; treatment; and the direction that studies on cerebral toxoplasmosis will likely take in the future.
