What are the signs and symptoms of congenital toxoplasmosis?
Most cases of congenital toxoplasmosis are asymptomatic, and initially go unrecognized. Severe cases resemble other acute intrauterine infections such as rubella or cytomegalovirus. Low birth-weight, enlargement of liver or spleen, and jaundice are common. Evidence of retinal infection may be found in 80-90% of known infected babies.
