Abstract

 Toxoplasma EncepfiaUtis (TE) is rare in pediatric patients, but it is an emerging opportunistic infection in the increasing number of immunocompromised hosts. It should be considered in patients who present with fever and evolving CNS symptoms. The outcome of these patients is always poor because of delay in diagnosis. We report one case of toxoplasma encephalitis in a child without HIV infection. Clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment, are discussed.
