Caption: Cerebral toxoplasmosis in AIDS. False-colour computed tomography (CT) scan of the brain of an AIDS patient suffering from toxoplasmosis. There are 3 yellow circular areas of infection in the cerebral hemispheres: at above centre left; centre right; lower centre left. Toxoplasmosis is caused by the single-celled protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Undercooked meat is a common source of infection. In most cases, the body's immune system provides protection against the organism. However, in AIDS sufferers with an immunodeficiency disorder, toxo- plasmosis can damage the heart, lungs, and cause severe encephalitis (brain inflammation). Abscess formation may also occur in the brain.
