How is the diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in the fetus?

By Zaira Salvador B.Sc., M.Sc. (embryologist).
Last Update: 03/30/2022

To find out if the fetus has been infected with the parasite, an amniocentesis will be necessary. This test will be performed whenever possible if the mother has the disease.

On the other hand, several ultrasound examinations will also be carried out to visualize if there are fetal anomalies.
