Torch All Eight FAQ
What is TORCH 8?
TORCH 8 is a panel of tests used to screen for various infections that can be transmitted from a mother to her developing fetus during pregnancy. TORCH is an acronym that stands for Toxoplasmosis, Other (such as syphilis), Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, and Herpes simplex virus. The additional "8" in TORCH 8 refers to the inclusion of four additional infections: Parvovirus B19, Varicella-zoster virus, Hepatitis B, and HIV. These tests help identify antibodies or antigens associated with these infections and assist healthcare providers in assessing the risk of potential complications during pregnancy. TORCH 8 testing plays a crucial role in prenatal care, allowing for timely intervention and appropriate management if any of the infections are present.
What if the TORCH test is positive?
If the TORCH test is positive, it indicates that antibodies or antigens associated with one or more of the tested infections (Toxoplasmosis, Other, Rubella, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes simplex virus, Parvovirus B19, Varicella-zoster virus, Hepatitis B, and HIV) are present in the individual's blood. A positive result does not necessarily mean that the person has a current active infection but suggests previous exposure or the presence of antibodies. Further diagnostic tests and medical evaluation may be required to determine the exact infection status and assess any potential risks to the individual or fetus. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to understand the implications of a positive TORCH test and to receive appropriate guidance and care.
