Understanding Toxoplasma gondii - IgM

What is Toxoplasma gondii - IgM?

Toxoplasmosis is a disease that is caused by parasite Taxoplasma gondii. This test detects the presence of IgM antibodies produced in the body in response to Toxoplasma gondii infection. IgM antibodies appear first after the infection, hence indicate a recent infection and help in early detection.

It has flu like symptoms including fever, nausea, headache, muscle pain and sore throat. Eating raw or undercooked meat from an infected animal and handling an infected cat or its feces can cause this infection. It may also be transmitted during pregnancy to the fetus.

Pregnant women, unborn babies and immunocompromised patients have a greater likelihood of getting infected. In case of adults generally the infection goes of its own in a few days ; however the consequences are severe in pregnant women and unborn babies leading to a damaged heart, brain, lungs and eyes.

What is Toxoplasma gondii - IgM used for?

The test is often suggested to a person who has a weak immune system or to a person who has been previously exposed to t.gondii. People with flu like symptoms and a severe brain or eye infection is also suspected to have Toxoplasma gondii.
