Cystoisospora Infection In Humans, Dogs and Cats
List of Human Diseases Associated with Toxoplasmosis - The infection with intracellular protozoan Toxoplasma gondii, one of the world's most common parasites infecting most warm-blooded animals (more than 30 species of birds and 300 species of mammals). It is the most common infection in humans (estimated to be 30–50% of the world population), more than latent tuberculosis which infects about one-third of the human population. Toxoplasma infection is associated with a high incidence of traffic accidents and diseases such as epilepsy and schizophrenia.
