TORCH testing in HIV-infected women

, : TORCH testing in HIV-infected women. Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology 42(1): 149-62; Quiz 174-5

Screening for TORCH (Toxoplasma gondii, rubella, cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex) infections in HIV-infected pregnant women is reviewed. It is recommended that prenatal patients with newly diagnosed HIV infection should be tested for T. gondii IgG antibodies; if positive, IgM antibodies should be obtained in an attempt to rule out acute T. gondii infection.
