Case Rep Infect Dis. 2020 Sep 7:2020:8876240. doi: 10.1155/2020/8876240. eCollection 2020.


Immunocompetent hosts with toxoplasmosis are usually asymptomatic. However, T. gondii can present as an acute systemic infection. Symptomatic patients usually have a benign, self-limited course that typically lasts from a few weeks to months. Herein, we present a 66-year-old immunocompetent female who developed dysphagia and new-onset cervical lymphadenopathy during pulmonary Mycobacterium avium complex treatment.
