A year-old woman presented to her general practitioner at 12 weeks’ gestation. Women who have close contact with chickenpox during pregnancy and no previous history of the disease should be tested as soon as possible for varicella antibody most are seropositive, even in the absence of a past history.

TORCH infections.

J Pediatrics ; The epidemiology of rubella and congenital rubella in Australia, to Serological testing should be repeated up to three weeks after contact to detect seroconversion. Some vertically transmissible infections can be prevented or treated if detected by routine antenatal screening.

Two weeks later at 17 weeks’ perinatlesthe woman developed a sparse varicelliform rash and minimal systemic symptoms, which resolved rapidly. Friday, 24 October, Toxoplasmosis is acquired through eating raw or undercooked meat or ingesting soil contaminated with toxoplasma oocysts, which are excreted in the faeces of infected cats. If certain other vertically transmissible infections are suspected because of a positive antenatal test result, confirmatory tests for maternal and, if indicated, fetal infection are essential before intervention is considered eg, cytomegalovirus infection.

Tests not recommended for antenatal screening in Australia. Breastfeeding is the only vertical route. Monitoring pregnancy outcomes after prenatal drug exposure through prospective pregnancy registries: For troch IgM, the result should be confirmed by testing of IgM fractions after sucrose density centrifugation of the serum.


She had recently returned to Australia after living in the Philippines, where routine antenatal screening had infecckones toxoplasma IgM but not IgG. It should be considered only if active genital lesions that cannot be covered are present at the onset of labour. Friday, 9 June, to Saturday, 8 June, He progressed normally, but at nine months of age developed a vesicular rash in the distribution of dermatome T If primary perinatalee CMV infection is suspected because of close contact or a compatible illness, serological and liver function tests and a blood film will usually confirm the diagnosis case report, Box 5.

Epidemiol Infect ; Investigation and management are often difficult and associated with potential ethical and medicolegal pitfalls.

Case report — investigation of possible toxoplasmosis in pregnancy. Aciclovir treatment of varicella and herpes simplex virus during pregnancy can significantly reduce morbidity in the mother and potentially in the infant 9 E2.

Enterovirus infection Many different enteroviruses circulate in the community, especially during summer.

Prenat Diagn ; Pre-pregnancy testing should include routine antenatal screening tests Box 2along with assessment of varicella immunity. Risk of fetal damage falls steeply after the first trimester and is negligible after 16 weeks; between 12 and 16 weeks, deafness has been reported.

Perjnatales, monitor by ultrasound for hydrops 7.

TORCH infections.

Br J Obstet Gynaecol ; Infections in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Women who receive MMR should be retested for rubella IgG seroconversion after two months and revaccinated if necessary.


Investigation and management of symptomatic infective illness during pregnancy. If both IgG and IgM are present and their levels remain unchanged in sequential specimens, IgM testing should be repeated using a different method. A negative specific IgG result early in the illness does not exclude recent infection. Detailed discussion of risks and options and possible further investigation is essential.

Most recommendations are not controversial, but may vary between populations and over time because of changes in the epidemiology of infections and the availability and cost of screening tests and interventions. Ultrasound examination at 11 weeks’ gestation had found no abnormalities.

Saturday, 20 May, Imported diseases,Prevention of infections and contacts. Women who remain susceptible to rubella should receive MMR vaccine post partumunless two previous attempts at immunisation have failed. If negative, give measles—mumps—rubella vaccine before conception or post partum. Wednesday, 2 May, to Wednesday, 1 May, HIV antibody testing should perinxtales offered to all pregnant women, and any who are seropositive should be offered antiretroviral therapy 1 E2.

Expert advice and appropriate investigations are essential before interventions such as termination of pregnancy or administration of potentially toxic drugs are considered. Primary genital herpes usually type 2 may be clinically severe, with heavy and prolonged viral excretion, and higher risk of transmission to the infeccionrs during vaginal delivery than recurrent disease.
