How is toxoplasmosis treated?
If detected early, antiparasitic treatments can eliminate toxoplasmosis before the parasite harms the fetus.
What is the likelihood that my baby will have toxoplasmosis?
Fortunately, the risk of maternal transmission of the parasite to the fetus during the first trimester of pregnancy (when the baby is most vulnerable) is relatively low — at 15-20 percent.
However, by the third trimester, a pregnant woman with toxoplasmosis has a 60 percent chance of infecting her child. So, it's very important to get checked out if you think you may have been exposed to the parasite.
We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them.
