Abstract: Objective to evaluate and compare serum testosterone in patients with toxoplasmosis and normal healthy individuals. Materials and methods A case control study was conducted in 150 subjects in military hospital, during the period from February to June 2015. The studied population consisted 100 patients already diagnosed as toxoplasmosis patients (58 male and 42 female) as cases and 50 apparently healthy individuals (32 male and 18 female) as controls. Five ml of The blood samples were collected and sera separated by centrifugation at 4000 rpm. the serum testosterone levels were accurately measured and compared. Results We found significantly increasing in serum testosterone levels in toxoplasmosis patients as compared to control (p=0.000). also we found significantly increasing in serum testosterone levels inmale patients as compared to control male (p=0.000), also a significantly increasing in serum testosterone levels in female as compared to control female (p=0.000). also we found significantly increasing in serum testosterone levels in patient male as compared to patient female (p=0.001). Conclusion These findings concluded that toxoplasmosis is associated with higher serum testosterone levels.
