We report 3 cases of infants born at the Hospital Roberto Galindo Teran de Cobija, none of them had a prenatal diagnosis, they presented multiple clinical findings: anterior and posterior fontanelles and sutures open, hepatosplenomegaly of 3 cm purpuric syndrome, microphthalmia, congenital infection of TORCH group was suspect, results of IgG and IgM serology for toxoplasmosis and ultrasonographic confirming the diagnosis of congenital toxoplasmosis in all cases. Mortality was present in 2 cases and one remained alive.
