Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Toxoplasmosis acquired at the end of the pregnancy can produce ocular and neurological sequelae. The detection of IgM anti-Toxoplasma gondii in dried blood spots of newborns is an important tool for early treatment and prevention. In this study we showed results of a pilot study about the prevalence of congenital toxoplasmosis in Brazil and concluded that this disease should be included in the menu of neonatal screening programs.
