Sera from 1,221 pregnant women were screened for antibodies against Toxoplasma gondii. The prevalence rate of antibodies was 38.9%. We have observed specific IgM antibodies 15 pregnant women (1.2%). The prevalence rate was not increased significantly with the age and number of pregnancies. The seropositivity was reduced significantly in the 4th year studied. The high rate of seronegativity observed in the pregnant women represent a high risk of Toxoplasma infestation.
