AB  - Background: Toxoplasmosis is an infection that affects almost a third of the
      world population. In adults, it is often asymptomatic, although having important 
      manifestation in children- infected by placental transmission. The prenatal is an
      important moment, requiring actions in women's care during pregnancy, in order to
      prevent diseases that could compromise the mother and the child's life. Methods: 
      This is a descriptive study of qualitative approach aimed to understand the
      perception of nurses and pregnant women about toxoplasmosis during primary -
      prenatal care. The study was conducted in five selected primary health care
      units, in the municipality of Sao Luis - MA. The sample consisted of 15 nurses
      working in nursing consultation and 15 pregnant women attended in prenatal care. 
      For data collection, a semi-structured questionnaire and an interview guide
      covering issues related to knowledge and conduct on toxoplasmosis were used. For 
      analysis, the content analysis technique was used. Results: The answers were
      transcribed, organized and grouped thematically, where the following categories
      emerged: knowledge about examination requests; knowledge about toxoplasmosis;
      guidance during prenatal consultation; knowledge of nurses about the avidity
      test; procedures and guidelines on reagent cases. Pregnant women showed
      unawareness about toxoplasmosis and its effects. Nurses, although having basic
      knowledge about the subject, showed little applicability regarding pregnant
      women's guidance. Conclusion: The nurse plays an important role in educational
      activities regarding pregnant women, contributing to the quality of prenatal
      care. Pregnant women were shown to have some knowledge about toxoplasmosis,
      although they said they did not have assurance about prevention.
