    Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii and infects most genera of warm-blooded animals, including humans, but the primary host is the felid (cat) family. This infection may clinically resemble influenza, hence causing diagnostic dilemma. Here we report a...
