Resumen

DENIS-GARCIA, Carlos et al. Empyema due to toxoplasmosis. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.6, pp.994-999. ISSN 0186-4866.  http://dx.doi.org/10.24245/mim.v34i6.1995.

Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by Toxoplasma gondii, which usually causes asymptomatic disease in immunocompetent humans; in immunocompromised patients, the manifestations are atypical and severe. This article describes the case of a 14-year-old girl, previously healthy with diagnosis of empyema by Toxoplasma gondii by direct observation of the protozoon in pleural fluid and lung biopsy, which was resolved with washing and decortication as well as medical management with trimethoprim with sulfamethoxazole.

Palabras llave : Toxoplasmosis; empyema; Toxoplasma gondii.
