TORCH IgG & IgM test is a panel of tests for detecting the presence of specific infections in pregnant women or newborns.
A TORCH IgG & IgM test detects diseases that can occur due to the following parasites or viruses:
These diseases can spread from the mother to the fetus. Generally, this transmission occurs during pregnancy or delivery period.
The TORCH 10 IgG IgM test detects the presence of an infection that can happen due to the four types of TORCH pathogens. Your body fights these infections by producing antibodies like IgG and IgM. The TORCH IgG & IgM test detects these antibodies in your blood.
If both antibodies (IgG & IgM) are present in the blood, there is an ongoing infection. On the other hand, the absence of both them indicates no infection. A positive IgG and negative IgM result mean an old infection that is cured already. Similarly, a negative IgG and positive IgM signifies a recent TORCH infection.
The most significant reason to test for TORCH infections is to safeguard any risk to the newborn. If you overlook these infections, there might be cases of congenital disabilities in infants.
A doctor will always recommend this test for pregnant women in most cases. Also, women with recurrent abortions should undergo the TORCH 10 test.
