Toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection, varies in its prevalence in various countries. Some studies have suggested its role in the abortion. The aim of this study was to determine the role of anti-Toxoplasma antibody as an etiologic factor in recurrent spontaneous abortion. Material and Methods: A case-control study was conducted on 120 women with unexplained recurrent pregnancy loss (group I) and 50 women were matched with normal delivery allocated as control group. The sera from 120 cases and 50 controls were tested for anti-Toxoplasma IgG antibody by ELISA. Results: The present study revealed a higher percentage of anti-Toxoplasma IgG antibodies positivity in women with repeated abortions (17.5%) than the control group (14%) however, the difference between them was not statistically significant (p=0.7). Conclusion: The analysis of these results shows that in spite of the confirmed role of Toxoplasma gondii in fetal abortion, there was no significant difference between the study and control groups. Whether toxoplasmosis can cause repeated abortion is still controversial. Thus, to determine the relationship between toxoplasmosis and recurrent abortions, a large cohort of women with toxoplasmosis is required to assess the incidence of otherwise unexplained recurrent abortions.
