QUESTION: A 28-year-old patient is 3 months pregnant with her first child. She has heard about toxoplasmosis from her friends and asks if it is safe to keep her cat. How should I reply?
ANSWER: Your patient does not have to give up her cat. She should be encouraged to take primary preventive measures. If toxoplasmosis serology is performed, a baseline should be done as early as possible with serial follow up in the second and third trimesters.
