Abstract

A 29-year-old male patient with a history of type 1 diabetes mellitus, stage 5 chronic kidney disease secondary to diabetic kidney disease that required living donor kidney transplantation in 2018. During these years, he has received immunosuppressive treatment with prednisolone, tacrolimus, and mycophenolate. He was admitted to the emergency department for focal epileptic crisis with secondary generalization.

The diagnostic approach of cerebral toxoplasmosis in immunocompromised patients is a clinical challenge, due to the great variability of associated signs and symptoms in this population and the high frequency of complications, which can confuse the diagnosis.
