Infectious Diseases

Another toxoplasmosis question



Thanks so much for your previous reply. Can you please tell me on average how long IgM for toxoplasmosis would be detectable on bloodwork? I`ve read it`s usually detected for several months, but is it closer to 2 months, 6 months, longer?


Persistence of IgM varies widely. It is not unusual for IgM to remain positive for 1 year after acute infection.
