T. gondii is a worldwide zoonosis. Children of women who acquire the infection during gestational period can develop congenital infection. In this study our aim was to determine the prevalence of Toxoplasma gondii in 455 pregnant women with an age range of 17-45 years. In this retrospective study, pregnant women applied to Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department of Adiyaman 82'nd Year State Hospital between January 2007 and December 2008 were evaluated in order to find the prevalence of anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgG and IgM antibodies. Seropositivity rates of anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgG and IgM antibodies were found to be 48.4% and 0.65%, respectively. In conclusion, due to the high seroprevalence rate of anti-T gondii antibodies we believe that taking measures related to the hygiene of the foods consumed and determining T. gondii serological markers of pregnant women in our region is essential.
