Abstract:

Twenty eight marmoset monkeys Saguinus Oedipomidas oedipus were infected either orally or intraperitoneally by cyst-forming Toxoplasma strains, both virulent and avirulent for mice. All monkeys died between the 6th and 17th days following infection of acute toxoplasmosis. In spite of the fact that the infective doses as well as degree of virulence and routes of infection varied, clinical course and pathological-anatomical picture of infection were the same in all monkeys. Differences were only noted in the histopathological findings of the duodenum. The inflammative signs observed ranged from superficial erosion of the mucous membrane to extensive necroses that penetrated deeply into the submucosa. In nearly all organs as well as in peritoneal exudate toxoplasms were demonstrated in animal experiments both microscopically and histologically. In all instances the mucosa and submucosa of the duodenum proved to be most affected. Differences were observed in the morphological structure and stainability of the trophozoite and proliferative forms of the parasites. Modified author abstract
