Good afternoon, thank you in advance for the question.
TORCH stands for Toxoplasmosis, Other infections (ex: syphilis, measles, HIV, varicella zoster, etc.), Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes simplex. TORCH examination is one type of investigation that can check antibodies for these infections. Generally this examination is carried out on pregnant women or those who have a pregnancy plan to prevent complications in the fetus. The examination is done by taking a blood sample and checking the specific antibodies of the infection. The antibody results obtained are IgG and IgM. IgG is a result that shows an infection that has been experienced in the past, while IgM is a result that shows that you are infected now and are active. So that the results of IgM will generally be more attention because if a woman who is pregnant or plans to get pregnant is positive IgM results then there is a possibility that the infection can be transmitted to the fetus.
The mode of transmission can differ from each type of infection, depending on the disease. In diseases that fall into the category of sexually transmitted diseases, it can be transmitted through sexual contact, such as genital herpes, syphilis, HIV, etc.
In toxoplasmosis is an infection due to the parasite Toxoplasma gondii which is transmitted from animals to humans (which is mostly caused by cats), cannot be spread from human to human except in the case of pregnant women to their fetuses (parasites can be transmitted through the placenta). in this infection can be experienced if we consume food or drinks that have been contaminated with this parasite or because of exposure to cat feces that have these parasites.
In Rubella or German measles is one type of disease due to viral infection which is generally characterized by a reddish rash on the skin. The spread of this virus is very easy, namely by having saliva in the air released by the patient through coughing or sneezing, sharing food and drinks in the same plate or glass with the patient and if you touch your eyes, nose, or mouth after handling objects contaminated with rubella virus also causes you are infected.
Cytomegalovirus is an infection commonly found by adults, and generally does not cause serious symptoms, but if pregnant women are infected with this virus and transmit it to the fetus it can cause things like hearing loss, vision, seizures and mental disorders.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
