Abstract

The usefulness of cell culture of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid for the diagnosis of toxoplasmosis in immunocompromised hosts has not been stressed previously. We report an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome patient with disseminated toxoplasmosis who was diagnosed by isolation of Toxoplasma gondii in cell cultures from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid.
