The study was aimed to compare the predilection of Toxoplasma gondii cysts in the hearts and diaphragms of pigs and compared to the number of T. gondii cysts per gr from the hearts and diaphragm sof infected pigs. Pigs were examined as many as 171. Each organ was examined by digestion method in order to identify the presence of T. gondii cysts in these organs. The parameters measured were the percentages and numbers of T. gondii cysts which were
