The term TORCH stands for toxoplasmosis, other diseases (syphilis, HIV, measles, chickenpox), rubella, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and herpes simplex. TORCH examination is recommended for pregnant women or women who will undergo a pregnancy program as a preventive measure.
The following are symptoms of several diseases that can be detected from the TORCH examination:
Toxoplasmosis: does not cause specific complaints, but general complaints such as muscle pain, fatigue, fever, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes. In healthy humans it is not dangerous, but pregnant women can be at risk of miscarriage, premature birth, stillbirth, and fetal defects. Parasites that cause toxoplasmosis can be found in cat feces infected with Rubella: reddish rash on the skin, fever, dizziness, muscle aches, runny nose, red eyes, joint pain, enlarged lymph nodes. In pregnant women, it can increase the risk of congenital rubella syndrome in infants such as deafness, cataracts, congenital heart disease, brain, liver and lung disorders. Cytomegalovirus: symptoms are usually common symptoms such as toxoplasmosis and usually rinan. However, if you infect pregnant women, it can increase the risk of fetal death, premature birth, and abnormalities in the baby such as small head, liver damage, yellow skin and eyes, enlarged spleen, purple skin rash, delay in baby growth, to death of newborns. blisters or watery sores that feel sore or painful. Pregnant women who are infected with herpes simplex are at risk of transmitting to the fetus until miscarriage. The doctor may recommend doing a TORCH test because there is a history of the fetus not developing. We recommend that you follow your doctor's instructions to do a TORCH test before starting the program, getting pregnant again. If a certain infection is found, the doctor can provide the right treatment for you so that when you are pregnant, your condition is healthy and it is hoped that the pregnancy can run smoothly. The treatment that will be given depends on the results of the examination. If the test results are good, then the doctor does not need to provide special treatment for you.
