The monitoring of 290 pregnant women with suspicion of acute toxoplasmosis attended by Public Health Services is discussed. In 69% a single test (Elisa-IgM) led to the treatment. Of 112 treated, the system did not offer any drug to 24%. In 12.1% there was a progressive increase of IgM and IgG. In 48.2% the treatment was begun thirty days after the laboratorial diagnosis.
