Toxoplasma IgG

Toxoplasma infection is caused by a parasitic infection (Toxoplasmosis gondii) which may occur during pregnancy resulting in health problems in the baby which may be fatal. The first antibody reacting to the infection is IgM meaning that the infection was acquired during pregnancy or before conception. A positive IgG is the antibody appears after or together with IgM antibodies and starts a lifetime immunity. The IgG infection is never used alone for a diagnosis of early infection.
Interpretation:Pregnancy infection tests should be performed together as IgM and IgG antibodies to eliminate the acute infection, especially if the IgG levels are equivocal this result may indicate an acute infection.
