Toxoplasmosis

Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. Cats are the reservoir of the parasite. They excrete cysts in the environment, able to infect many other animals, and humans can become infected either by ingesting the cysts (by direct contact with cats or through food or water contaminated by cat faeces), or by eating poorly cooked meat containing cysts, especially pork and mutton.
