B58.8: Toxoplasmosis with other organ involvement

You have an illness that is caused by toxoplasma.

Toxoplasmosis involves pathogens that are mainly found in cat feces, unwashed vegetables and raw meat.

When someone is infected by toxoplasmosis, they usually have only minor symptoms. For example, you may feel weak, or have headaches, or your lymph nodes may swell up. The lymph nodes are small bean-shaped objects. They are found throughout the body. Lymph nodes filter the tissue fluid. They are part of the defense system. Toxoplasmosis may remain in the body. If the defense system is weak, the pathogens may cause more serious symptoms later on. The defense system may be weakened by another illness, for example, or by medicines.

In your case the toxoplasmosis has damaged certain parts of your body. The symptoms depend on which areas the illness has affected.
