Can toxoplasmosis be treated?
| Nezařazené

While it is possible to treat acute toxoplasmosis, its latent form, which may either be the result of a spontaneous change of the disease or of acute toxoplasmosis treatment, cannot be cured. In most cases, acute toxoplasmosis subsides before it is ever diagnosed. In some cases, toxoplasmosis treatment is absolutely necessary, like for immunocompromised people, such as patients who have undergone organ transplantation and take immunosuppressive drugs. Similarly, women, who became infected during pregnancy or shortly before getting pregnant, need to be treated. Toxoplasmosis can’t be treated with regular antibiotics against bacteria nor with antiviral drugs. Instead, specialised medicines are used (spiramycin, if necessary and only from the 16–18th week of pregnancy, combination of sulfadiazine and pyrimethamine accompanied by folinic acid, or clindamycin with pyrimethamine).
