Joint approach malaria and toxoplasmosis about 2727 cases at the Center for Biological and Medical Analysis of Hospital Abass Ndao Dakar (CHAN) from 1 January 2011 to 30 September 2012

Parasitology includes a wide variety of extracellular parasites, some of which are among the most serious, have a development in the blood visible after intracellular staining (Plasmodium, Babesia, Leishmania and Toxoplasma) or mobile (trypanosomes and microfilariae). Their detection and diagnosis is the first goal which is necessary for a diagnostic and prognostic biological technique. It is in this context that we assess parasitological examinations of blood. The diagnostic methods used are rapid diagnostic test (RDT), the thick blood, blood smears and serology for toxoplasmosis. The study was performed on 2727 patients in 2548 to 179 for malaria and toxoplasmosis. Indeed 105 cases of malaria are recorded including 103 due to P. falciparum is the most dangerous species and two cases caused by P. malariae. Hospital prevalence found for malaria is 4, 12% with a significant monthly variation confirming seasonal resurgence of the disease. The number of cases of toxoplasmosis is 82 also found a prevalence of 45.81%. While efforts are being made, but they must be stepped up to significantly reduce the prevalence of these parasites.Keywords:
