[Toxoplasmosis and threatened abortion].


To know the situation of the toxoplasmosis in Comitán Chiapas, we made a serological indirect inmunofluorecent antibody test (IFA) to the population of this city and to fifty women with abortion in evolution. The results show us that around five percent of the population in general have positive title of antitoxoplasma gondii antibiodies, and 18% in the women with abortion evolution case. The statistics concluded that seropositive for this parasitic disease is real higher between cases of abortion than population in general (P < 0.006), as well as it is significantly higher in abortion cases than women of the general population of Comitán Chiapas (P < 0.01).
