Description:Caption:
The pregnant woman depicted in this 2005 image, was about to pet her cat, while her husband was in the process of changing the cat’s litter, in order for the woman to avoid contact with possible pathogens such as Toxoplasma gondii, the etiologic agent responsible for the disease, toxoplasmosis. Of those who are infected, very few have symptoms because a healthy person's immune system usually keeps the parasite from causing illness. However, pregnant women and individuals who have compromised immune systems should be cautious; for them, a Toxoplasma infection could cause serious health problems.
