The influence of Zinc and Magnesium serum levels on selected chronic toxoplasmosis with and without liver cirrhosis versus pure liver cirrhosis was studied. Zn and Mg serum levels were measured in 199 male and female subjects (age range 19-62 years). These were divided into 4 groups. G1: 100 patients with toxoplasmosis, G2: 25 toxoplasmosis patients with liver cirrhosis, G3: 25 patients with liver cirrhosis without toxoplasmosis and G4: 49 crossmatched liver parasites healthy control. A statistically significant reduction in the serum level of both Zn and Mg was recorded in G2 compared with G4. Also, a statistically significant reduction in serum level of both Zn and Mg in G2 compared to G3 in whom Zn and Mg were already depleted. However, patients with chronic toxoplasmosis and without cirrhosis (G1) compared G4, showed a statistically significant reduction in serum Mg level, but reduction in Zn level was not significant
