Will a positive TORCH test have any complications in pregnancy?

Q: My wife is one month and 8 days pregnant. She has been found positive for TORCH complex (for rubella, toxoplasma, cytomegalovirus). Should we go ahead with the child?

A:Routine screening of all pregnant females is done to find the immune status regarding Toxoplasma, Rubella, CMV and Herpes. IgG antibodies indicate previous exposure (or vaccination for rubella), and IgM antibodies are indicative of a recent infection. Secondly, these are surrogate markers and have to be evaluated in the light of clinical details. Please consult your obstetrician for specific details.
