Toxoplasmosis, caused by the protozoan parasite T. gondii, is an important disease with worldwide distribution. The ingestion of raw or undercooked meat from pork containing tissue cysts has been highlighted as the major sources of human infection by this protozoan, and may represent 50% or more of toxoplasmosis human cases. Most T. gondii infections in swine are subclinical, but toxoplasmosis can cause clinical signs in pits of all ages. Clinical toxoplasmosis has been reported most often in nursing pigs. Infected pigs are born dead, sick, or become sick within 3 weeks after birth; some remain clinically normal. Labored respiration is the most common clinical sign of toxoplasmosis. Other clinical signs include fever, general weakness, diarrhea, nervous signs and rarely, loss of vision. Detection of antibodies to T. gondii by a blood test can aid diagnosis.
