- ACRONYM
- hypothesisThe TORCH screen is often requested by gynecologists, but there rarely is a clinical relevant outcome. Isnít it better to reduce the test indications or the number of tested infections to make the test more cost effective and clinical relevant? And if there are minimal or even no clinical effects, isnít it better to stop testing?

- Brief summaryWe use the TORCH test to detect a maternal primo-infection of toxoplasmosis, rubella virus, cytomegalovirus, herpes simplex virus or others like syfilis during the pregnancy. Most likely the test is requested by a gynaecologist because of abnormal ultrasonographic findings, including fetal growth restriction, polyhydramnios, intra-uterine fetal death and hydrops foetalis. The aim of the study is to evaluate how much woman did have a primo-infection during pregnancy and what the consequences are for the child. Therefore, the laboratory records of all TORCH titres by pregnant woman between 01-10-2005 and 30-09-2013 in Orbis Medical Centre will be reviewed.
