The study was a pproved by the Alrahma Medical collage and written informed consents were obtained from the patients. The study group co mprised pregnant women. Samples were tested for anti-Toxoplasma IgG and IgM antipodies by using OnSite Toxo IgG/IgM Rapid Test-Cassette. The OnSite Toxo IgG/IgM Rapid Test is a lateral flow chromatographic immunoassay for the simultane ous detection and differentiation of IgG and IgM anti-Toxoplasma Gondii (T. gondii) in human serum or plasma. This kit is i ntended to be used as a screening test and as an aid in the diagnosis of infection with T. gondii. Any reactive specimen with t he OnSite Toxo IgG/IgM Rapid Test must be confirmed with alternative testing method(s) and clinical findings. Results: In the present study found that 13 sample (13%) were seropositive and 87 cases (87%) were seronegative for Toxo plasma specific IgG antibody and 4 samples (4%) were seropositive and 96 samples (96%) were seronegative for toxoplasm a specific IgM antibody. The distribution of positive serum samples among the different age groups for anti-Toxoplasma gon dii IgG and IgM showed that pregnant woman of the age group 23-30 years had the highest percentage (17.78 % and 6.68% ) of positive results respectively. In present study of all cases,71 living in village which 4 (13.8%) cases of them were detecte d as IgG and 3(3.5) cases of them were detected as IgM. Of all cases 68 had history of contact with cat which 10(14.7) cases of them were detected as IgG positive and 4(5.9) cases of them were detected as IgM. In the present study showed that the s eropositivity of Toxoplasma in relation to the number of times the antenatal woman experienced BOH revealed that the high est percentages (13.20%) of positivity was noted among women with a history of one BOH and seropositive cases were distri buted in relation to the type of BOH revealed that Abortion (66.67%) was the commonest form of pregnancy wastage..
