When to Seek Medical Care
Because the majority of people do not get symptoms with toxoplasmosis, most infected individuals do not seek medical care. However, people who develop enlarged cervical lymph nodes and develop a flu-like syndrome and suspect or know they have had close associations with cats or, perhaps, cat-contaminated food or water should consider seeking medical care. If women who are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant develop these symptoms, they should seek medical care. Immunodepressed individuals, especially those with HIV infection, should also seek medical care if the above-mentioned symptoms develop or if they develop new eye symptoms or mental-status changes.
