Toxoplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by parasites which is widespread throughout the world. For the pathogens, man is only an intermediate host, the main host is cats.
The toxoplasmosis transmission is mainly carried out by raw and insufficiently heated meat products as well as by contact with contaminated food or soil. Usually the infection does not cause any discomfort. However, the toxoplasmosis can be severe, especially in the case of immune-weakened and pregnant women.

Toxoplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. It is actually an animal disease (zoonoses), which the human being “captures” only as an intermediate host of the parasite.
Infection with toxoplasmosis often occurs and can affect people of all ages. It usually goes unnoticed, but can also cause discomfort. In people with a weakened immune system, toxoplasmosis can have serious consequences. The same is true for a first infection in pregnancy.
