Left Cerebellary Toxoplasmosis with No Immunodefiency: Case Report

Toxoplasmosis is caused by an infection with an obligate intracellular parasite, Toxoplasma gondii. The patients are usually immunocompromised. It causes a silent infection in healthy individuals. Trimethoprim sulfamethoxazole is the most common drug used for toxoplasmosis. A fifty year old male applied to our out-patient department with the complaint of right hemiparesis, walking difficulty, ear humming and facial asymmetry on May 2010. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a left cerebellary mass lesion. He was operated and the pathological findings were consistent with ‘toxoplasmosis’; although we could not demonstrate an immunodeficiency in this patient.
