The seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii (15.7%), Leptospira spp. (0.7%) and Brucella abortus (0.0%) was determined in sugarcane workers in Trinidad and Tobago but the risk factors studied did not significantly affect infection.
Routine serological screening for toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and
rubella should be recommended in women of childbearing age.
Seronegative subjects should be vaccinated for rubella and educated
for protection from toxoplasmosis.
Objective: Toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella may cause congenital infections. The aim of this study is to investigate toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella IgG antibodies in women and children who were admitted to the Hatay Women and Children Hospital between January 1 and December 31, 2009.
