Background: Toxoplasma gondii is an opportunistic protozoan parasite that can infect all warm-blooded animals including humans and cause serious clinical manifestations. Toxoplasmosis can be diagnosed using histological, serological, and molecular methods. In this study, we aimed to detect T. gondii RE gene in various human samples by in house and commercial real time polymerase chain reactions.
