Caption: Toxoplasmosis in the brain of an AIDS (acquired immuno deficiency syndrome) victim. Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. This is a parasite which exists in many people but is kept under control by their immune systems. In people with weakened immune systems, such as AIDS patients, it can however cause lung and heart damage, strokes and ensephalitis (brain inflammation). It is often contracted via cat faeces.
