Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We describe two unusual cases of congenital toxoplasmosis, one occurring after preconception maternal infection with cervical adenopathies and the other occurring after maternal infection at the very end of pregnancy with maternal seronegativity at delivery. These documented cases of congenital toxoplasmosis demonstrate the value of extending the serologic monitoring period during pregnancy, according to the individual clinical context.
