Abstract After a broad review of the possible sources of toxoplasmosis and the principal occupations exposed to risk (butchers, laboratory workers, veterinary surgeons, cooks, etc.), the author states briefly the conditions to be met before a case of toxoplasmosis can be considered as an occupational disease in Czechoslovakia.
