In this review, among patients for whom the diagnosis was made early enough to begin specific treatment, conditions of 68% improved; this finding was in marked contrast to the severe morbidity and mortality observed for untreated individuals. Expand
Case report: fatal pulmonary toxoplasmosis following chemotherapy.
A 41-year-old woman with acute myelomonocytic leukemia in remission died of a rapidly progressive necrotizing pneumonia while in the recovery phase following consolidation chemotherapy. AutopsyExpand
Immunology of Toxoplasma gondii
The immunological aspects of Toxoplasma gondii as they relate to disease in man are reviewed to place into perspective the various immunological parameters associated with host resistance and immunodiagnosis. Expand
Observations on the pathogenicity of Haemogregarina sachai Kirmse, 1978, in farmed turbot Scophthalmus maximus (L.)
Cultured turbot Scophthalmus maximus (L.) from three farms at Hunterston, Scotland were found to be infected with Haemogregarina sachai, and Histologically, there was an accumulation of parasitized reticulo-endothelial cells, cell debris and pyknotic nuclei. Expand
Toxoplasmosis in the compromised host.
In 81 cases of toxoplasmosis in patients with neoplasia, collagen-vascular disorders, and organ allografts, the clinical manifestations were highly variable but neurologic syndromes consistent withExpand
Immunosuppression and toxoplasmic encephalitis: clinical and experimental aspects.
Encephalitis developing after prolonged antineoplastic therapy in patients with Hodgkin's disease and in one with multiple myeloma was found at autopsy to be caused by toxoplasmosis, and the roles of cells and of antibodies in immune surveillance against this chronic infection in otherwise normal hosts are considered.

Coexistent congenital cytomegalovirus and toxoplasmosis in a stillborn.
Coexistent congenital cytomegalovirus and toxoplasmosis occurred in a stillborn infant. Both intracellular organisms were demonstrated within the same cell.
Toxoplasmosis. Clinical experiences in a cancer hospital.
In immunosuppressed patients with neoplasms there is a significant frequency of Toxoplasma infection, with particular predilection with central nervous system disease, and routine serologic testing of such patients should be instituted. Expand
Toxoplasmosis. A complication of corticosteroid-and cyclophosphamide-treated lupus erythematosus.
There is evidence that corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents modify the immune response to experimentally induced toxoplasmosis and Familiarity with toxoplasmsosis and other uncommon infectious diseases will be essential as the use of immunosppressive agents increases in dermatology. Expand
