Abstract [en]

Infection with the cosmopolitan parasite Toxoplasma gondii is often associated with severe consequences and a high mortality rate in immunocompromized patients. Non-specific symptoms make diagnosis challenging. Monitoring of patients at risk is of value. We here present 8 cases of toxoplasmosis in immunocompromized patients with suggestions for preventive monitoring.
