Testing & Diagnosis for Toxoplasmosis in Children

A blood test before or during pregnancy can determine if you have been exposed to the toxoplasma gondii parasite.

If you are infected, another type of test can determine whether the baby is infected. In addition, fetal ultrasounds/ prenatal ultrasounds can determine if the baby's organs are damaged.

Currently, physicians in the United States do not routinely screen pregnant women for toxoplasma gondii.
