ToRCH is an acronym for a group of infections that can cause significant birth defects and even fetal death. The infections comprising ToRCH are:

  • Toxoplasmosis
  • Other (Special ID)
  • Rubella
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
  • Herpes simplex virus (HSV)

 

Generally, patient history and risk factors guide prenatal and perinatal maternal testing for ToRCH organisms. These tests are performed in the first trimester of pregnancy, and neonates may also be tested for specific ToRCH organisms based on clinical history.
