Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An 18-month-old male Indonesian with blindness, microphthalmia and bilateral cataracts was found to have antibody titers against Toxoplasma gondii of 1:512, 1:1024 and 1:1024 respectively by the indirect hemagglutination, indirect fluorescent antibody and Sabin-Feldman dye test. Serum from the child's mother by the same test also demonstrated antibody titers of 1:1024, 1:512 and 1:512 respectively. The clinical manifestations in the child and the presence of anti-toxoplasma antibodies in both mother and child suggest that the disease was congenitally acquired.
