Thanks for the query.
The TORCH test is ordered when a pregnant woman is suspected of having any of the TORCH infections. These infections can be serious if they occur during pregnancy
because they can cross the placenta from the mother to the developing fetus and can cause congenital defects in the newborn.
infection during the first 16 weeks of pregnancy presents major risks for the unborn baby. When a pregnant woman has a rash
and other symptoms of rubella, laboratory tests are required to make the diagnosis. A physician cannot tell if a person has rubella by their clinical appearance since other infections may look the same. Women infected with Toxoplasma or CMV may have flu-like symptoms that are not easily differentiated from other illnesses. Antibody testing will help the physician diagnose an infection that may be harmful to the unborn baby.
