A case of congenital toxoplasmosis showing four of the major criteria for its diagnosis is reported. The literature on congenital toxoplasmosis has been summarized briefly. The clinical, pathological and radiological features of congenital toxoplasmosis are descriptionbed.
This case is an example of how a false, positive, radiological diagnosis of placenta praevia was made in the presence of an advanced carcinoma of the cervix during pregnancy. A further argument is advanced for the routine exposure of the cervix in all pregnant patients where there is vaginal bleeding, regardless of any other tentative diagnosis than that of carcinoma of the cervix. A method of treating the uterus to avoid spread of sepsis, following classical caesarean section in the presence of carcinoma of the cervix during late pregnancy, is descriptionbed.
*This case was shown at a meeting of the Transkei Branch, held at Umtata, on 25 August 1951. The history, operations and treatment are presented of a case with: Multiple abdominal perforations; Arteriovenous fistula of the third part of the subclavian vessels.
