Introduction: Toxoplasmosis is Zoonoses among humans and animals with cosmopolitan distribution. Acquired form of the disease often has no symptoms or discomfort of swollen lymph nodes and associated Chorioretinitis. The congenital form of the disease from mother to fetus via the placenta is delivered. Congenital infection may cause abortion or damage the central nervous system and eye disorders. The aim of this study was to determine toxoplasmosis Seroepidemiologyin serum of suspected patients referring to medical lab, 2013. Materials and Methods: This study is cross- sectional. Of the total 712 cases during 2013 in the physical examination was diagnosed with suspected toxoplasmosis infection, were referred for evaluation of serological diagnostic laboratories. Produced in the laboratory from patients' serum samples by ELISA method using kits of anti-Toxoplasma gondii antibodies Chorus Toxoplasma IgG, IgM were tested. Data on age, sex and time of the visit and laboratory test results were recorded in the Czech list, and then were analyzed using SPSS software. Results: A total of 712 sera tested 649 patients (91.2%) were female and 63 ((8.8% were male. 171 (24.3%) of the antibody IgG and 25 ((3.5% in terms of IgM in serum were positive. In sex 159 women (93%)) and 12 males (7%) IgG were positive. In females, 24 (96%)) and 1 male (4%) IgM were positive. Most positive tests than 9.5% in those aged over 50 years were observed. The lowest percentage of positive samples in the age group less than 20 years (20%) and highest in patients older than 60 years (8/47 percent) was observed. Conclusion: As a general conclusion, it can be stated that the frequency of specific IgM and IgG antibodies in toxoplasmosis, in the suspected-to-have toxoplasmosis and control groups was not statistically significant. Also, we can conclude that abortion is involved in the development of chronic toxoplasmosis.
