Toxoplasma encephalitis complicating Hodgkin's disease.

    Abstract

    A case of Toxoplasma encephalitis is described in a patient who had received much immunosuppressive therapy for Hodgkin's disease. Such cases have been reported in immune suppressed patients outside the United Kingdom, but a search of the literature has not revealed any previous reports from this country. Since Toxoplasma gondii is a frequent pathogen and states of immune suppression are becoming more common, further cases, can be expected. Recognition of the clinical and pathological features is important because the condition can be treated.
