It should be done at about 19 weeks’ gestation, or at least six infeccioes after the likely time of infection. Primary genital herpes usually type 2 may be clinically severe, with heavy and prolonged viral excretion, and higher risk of transmission to the infant during vaginal delivery than recurrent disease. According to Antibiotic guidelines The first serum tested on the patient’s return to Australia was retrieved from another laboratory and was also negative for both toxoplasma IgG and IgM when tested by a different method.

Although rubella is generally preventable by vaccination, congenital rubella still occurs in Australia.

Maternal varicella within a few days before or after delivery can result in potentially severe varicella in the infant, 21 who should be given zoster immune globulin ZIG as soon as possible after birth.

Preventing infection in pregnancy Pre-pregnancy testing and counselling Ideally, a woman and her partner should consult their general practitioner when planning pregnancy. If certain other vertically transmissible infections are suspected because of a positive antenatal test result, confirmatory tests for maternal and, if indicated, tlrch infection are essential before intervention is considered eg, cytomegalovirus infection.

This was declined, as the patient and her husband decided not to consider terminating the pregnancy even if culture and polymerase chain reaction of amniotic fluid were positive for CMV.


Reactivation is asymptomatic, except in severely immunocompromised individuals. The virus then becomes latent, but is reactivated periodically during episodes of mild immunosuppression caused by intercurrent infection, pregnancy or stress. Infection should not be diagnosed on the basis of a single positive IgM result case report, Box 6. Infants of women who are seropositive before conception are not at risk. Proven infection If a vertically transmissible infection is confirmed or cannot be excluded in a pregnant woman, the risk to the fetus depends on the stage of pregnancy and the type of infection.

A negative specific IgG result early in the illness does not exclude recent infection. If fetal infection is confirmed, the stage of pregnancy at which it occurred, viral load in the amniotic fluid and evidence of fetal abnormality or growth retardation on ultrasound examination may aid in considering termination of pregnancy.

Am J Obstet Gynecol ; Diagnosis of malformations in the first quarter. Saturday, 15 July, to Tuesday, 16 July, Toxoplasmosis Like CMV infection, toxoplasmosis is usually asymptomatic or has mild, non-specific symptoms. Testing should be repeated up to three weeks after contact.

If primary maternal 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.

Ultrasound examination at 11 weeks’ gestation torcg found no abnormalities. Immediate and long term outcome of toch parvovirus B19 infection in pregnancy. Investigations depend torh presentation Box 4.

J Pediatrics ; Vaginal Gram stain and culture for group B streptococci. Infections in Maternal-Fetal Medicine. Intervention should be based on laboratory-confirmed maternal and, if appropriate, fetal infection and consideration of known risks of fetal damage E3—E4, depending on infection.

Prenatal indicators of congenital cytomegalovirus infection. If IgG seroconversion does not occur, the IgM result is likely to be a false positive.

Perinatalee lower-limb deformities in an infant whose mother had varicella at 12 weeks’ gestation. Case report — investigation of possible toxoplasmosis in pregnancy Presentation: Breastfeeding is the only vertical route. This requires specialised tests, such as culture or nucleic acid testing of amniotic fluid. Women negative for rubella or varicella IgG should be offered measles—mumps—rubella MMR or varicella vaccine, respectively.

Not routine; should be offered to women of child-bearing age. Antibiotics for asymptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy. Sex Transm Dis ; Hydrops is caused by severe fetal anaemia and presents about five weeks after maternal infection. Rubella Although rubella is generally preventable by vaccination, congenital rubella still occurs in Australia.

Baillieres Clin Obstet Gynaecol ; 7: Similar criteria are used to support routine antenatal screening for syphilis. The woman and her husband decided that in the absence of any abnormality on ultrasound examination they would not consider terminating the pregnancy, even if the PCR result indicated fetal infection.

Med J Aust ; About a third of cases resolve spontaneously, and outcome is significantly improved in the remainder by intrauterine transfusion.

If maternal infection is confirmed or cannot be excluded, antibiotic treatment appears to reduce the risk of fetal infection and sequelae, 8 although this has not been confirmed by randomised controlled trials.

In pregnant womenmost infections are no more serious than in non-pregnant women of similar age. Horch, the risk of fetal infection is unrelated to the severity of maternal illness.
