A positive TORCH test simply means the patient has positive antibody levels against that particular infection and is therefore protected against them. 

 There are 2 types of antibodies - IgG and IgM. Thus, a positive Toxo IgG test means that the patient has anti-toxoplasmosis antibodies which protect her against a repeat toxoplasmosis infection. This means a positive test is actually a good sign and suggests that the patient is protected against that infection because she has been exposed to that infection in the past. Unfortunately, many doctors do not know how to interpret these results and scare the patient into thinking that the positive test result means she has an active infection which can cause her to miscarry.In fact, some doctors will even attempt to give medications for it,which in fact is not required at all.

There is absolutely nothing to worry regarding this TORCH test and no treatment is required for this positive IGg levels.
