The current study was revealed the seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii immunoglobulin (Ig)G and IgM among different types of leukemia (Acute lymphocytic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma [HL], multiple myeloma [MM], non-HL [NHL], and chronic myeloid leukemia) from male and female patients in different age groups (18–≥48 years) using indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The results of 140 cases of different types of leukemia showed the highest T. gondii IgG (44.44%) among MM leukemia whereas T. gondii IgM highest (12.5%) among NHL leukemia. Significant (P ≤ 0.01) differences between T. gondii antibodies and age group were recorded, that increased with the age of Leukemia patients. Hence, it could be concluded that multiple myeloid leukemia is strong immunocompromised and high significant (P ≤ 0.01) with toxoplasmosis.
