Reactivation of Latent Toxoplasmosis in a Schizophrenia Patient: A Case Report
TLDR
This case highlights the detection of probable reactivation of toxoplasmosis in an immunocompetent schizophrenic patient without psychiatric treatment-resistant and remains asymptomatic for toxoplasmsosis.
Scoping Review of Toxoplasma Postinfectious Sequelae.
TLDR
This scoping review includes summaries from the 108 articles covering 5 main groupings of outcomes including vision disorders, psychological and mental health disorders, neurological disorders, fetal death and infection, and hearing loss, as well as a description of other outcomes reported.
Seroepidemiology of Toxoplasma gondii infection in people with alcohol consumption in Durango, Mexico
TLDR
A distinct T. gondii seroprevalence in people with alcohol consumption is found from those previously found in population groups in the region, and the association between high anti-T.
Epigenetic Manipulation of Psychiatric Behavioral Disorders Induced by Toxoplasma gondii
TLDR
The recent infection prevalence of toxoplasmosis and the evidence of mental and behavioral disorders induced by T. gondii is reviewed and the related physiological basis including dopamine dysregulation and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) pathway is discussed and the controversial opinion of the necessity for cerebral cysts existence is discussed.
Catastrophic consequences: can the feline parasite Toxoplasma gondii prompt the purrfect neuroinflammatory storm following traumatic brain injury?
TLDR
The notion that these overlapping pathologies in TBI individuals with a chronic T. gondii infection have the strong potential to exacerbate neuroinflammation and related brain damage, leading to amplified functional deficits is presented.
Toxoplasmosis: Targeting neurotransmitter systems in psychiatric disorders
TLDR
The present review focused on the exact mechanisms of T. gondii effect on the alteration of behavior and neurotransmitter levels, their catabolites and metabolites, as well as the interaction between immune responses and this parasite in the etiopathogenesis of psychiatric disorders.

Increased risk of traffic accidents in subjects with latent toxoplasmosis: a retrospective case-control study
TLDR
The results suggest that 'asymptomatic' acquired toxoplasmosis might in fact represent a serious and highly underestimated public health problem, as well as an economic problem.
Does the prevalence of latent toxoplasmosis and frequency of Rhesus-negative subjects correlate with the nationwide rate of traffic accidents?
TLDR
The existence of a strong correlation between the prevalence of toxoplasmosis and health of population in particular countries, which was the probable cause of multicollinearity and possible reason for the negative result of the present study, suggests that 'asymptomatic' latent toxoplasmaosis could have a large impact on public health.
Seroepidemiology of Toxoplasma gondii infection in drivers involved in road traffic accidents in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico
BackgroundThe prevalence of toxoplasmosis in the general population of Guadalajara, Mexico, is around 32%. Toxoplasmosis can cause ocular lesions and slowing of reaction reflexes. Latent
Toxoplasmosis in immunocompromised patients in Iran: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A high seroprevalence rate of Toxoplasma infection among immunocompromised patients in Iran is identified and consideration of management, design and provision of appropriate control measures of toxoplasmosis is highly recommended.
Prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii parasite infection among people who died due to sudden death in the capital city of Warsaw and its vicinity.
TLDR
This work confirmed the usefulness of serologically testing samples collected post-mortem for epidemiological purposes and confirmed the significance of Toxoplasma gondii infection as a risk factor for self-destructive behaviour.
Increased incidence of traffic accidents in Toxoplasma-infected military drivers and protective effect RhD molecule revealed by a large-scale prospective cohort study
TLDR
The observed effects could provide not only a clue to the long-standing evolutionary enigma of the origin of RhD polymorphism in humans (the effect of balancing selection), but might also be the missing piece in the puzzle of the physiological function of the RhD molecule.
Significance of chronic toxoplasmosis in epidemiology of road traffic accidents in Russian Federation
TLDR
The consequences of chronic toxoplasmosis (particularly a slower reaction time and decreased concentration) might contribute to the peculiarities of the epidemiology of road traffic accidents in the Russian Federation and might interfere with the successful implementation of the Federal Programme named “Increase road traffic safety”.
