Screen for TORCH antibodies; aid in the diagnosis of congenital infection. Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. Approximately 23% of the immunocompetent population are asymptomatic carriers of the parasite. High titers of IgG antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii can persist for years. Rising IgG titers after birth, in the absence of a placental leak, are consistent with neonatal infection. Rubella is an acute exanthematous viral infection of children and adults. Rash, fever, and lymphadenopathy characterize the illness. While many infections are subclinical, this virus has the potential to cause fetal infection with resultant birth defects. In the absence of a current or recent infection, a demonstration of specific IgG on a serum sample is evidence of immunity to Rubella. A positive Rubella IgM result does not necessarily indicate current or recent infection. Without a history of exposure to Rubella or symptoms consistent with Rubella, the IgM result may be difficult to interpret. Rubella IgM can be false positive due to other causes (e.g., Parvovirus, Rheumatoid Factor, Cytomegalovirus). Rubella IgM may also persist for more than 12 months after vaccination or natural infection. For a serologic diagnosis of congenital Rubella in the neonatal period, antibody to Rubella virus should be measured in both infant and maternal sera. If IgM is detected in a newborn infant's serum, it is probable that transplacental Rubella infection has occurred.
