Following publication of the original article [1], the authors identified multiple errors in the original article;

1. The Methods and Results section contained incorrect sentences, and the changes have been highlighted below in bold typeface.

Methods:

Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) of gene polymorphism encoding MMP-9 was performed on 83 cases selected randomly.

Results:

PCR-RFLP shows the presence of muted allele of MMP-9 gene in selected cases whose present T. gondii serological profile IgM+/IgG+ and IgM-/IgG+ respectively.

2. The co-author’s names Amata El Mouhawess and Amal Hammoud possessed minor typos, and the names have been corrected.

Incorrect names:

Amata El Mouhawass

Amale Hammoud

Correct names:

Amata El Mouhawess

Amal Hammoud

The author group has been updated above and the original article [1] has been corrected.
