DIFFUSE CEREBRAL TOXOPLASMOSIS IN AN IMMUNOCOMPETENT PATIENT
Background. Cerebral involvement of toxoplasmosis is an unusual presentation in nonimmunocompromised individuals, and the diagnosis may be challenging due to insignificant radiological findings.
Result. We present a case of severe toxoplasma encephalitis in an immunocompetent individual mimicking clinical picture of vertebrobasilar ischemia at onset.
Conclusion. The highest diagnostic yield was the detection of DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) examination of the brain tissue which has been also diagnostic in our patient.

Keywords: Toxoplamosis, immunonocompetence, encephalopathy
