Özet

We report the case of a patient with disseminated toxoplasmosis who presented with cervical lymphadenopathies and pneumonia. Although the infection was successfully treated with co-trimoxazole, the patient developed reactive macrophage activation syndrome (rMAS). To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of rMAS triggered by toxoplasmosis in the medical literature.
