Abstract

In the clinic of oral surgery, we find many cases of swelling of lymphnode in the submandibular or neck region, one of which is toxoplasmosis. However, there are only five cases of toxoplasmosis reported in the part of the oral surgery in Japan.
We reported two cases. First case had a hen's egg sized tumor in the right submandibular region that was diagnosed as a toxoplasmosis depending on histological examination and serum anti-toxoplasma titer. The second one had some finger-tip sized lymphnodes in the right neck and was suspected as toxoplasmic lesion by titer and several other screenings.
