Hi doctor,

Myself and my wife got tested for chromosome test as my wife had failed premature delivery. The test result indicates that we are HSV IgG positive, CMV and rubella positive. Please suggest me.

Does HSV IgG positive mean we are infected with that virus?

Please look at TORCH test results and tell if there is any concern.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • This indicates that TORCH infections (toxoplasmosis, other - syphilis, etc., rubella, cytomegalovirus and herpes) might have caused the premature delivery or stillbirth.
  • HSV (herpes simplex virus) causes herpes, CMV is cytomegalovirus and rubella is another viral infection.
  • Treatment of these infections would be required before undertaking future family planning as these infections are a cause of repeated abortions.
  • But, I doubt that all three infections are simultaneously present in an individual. So, please attach the test report for further reference.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • IgG (immunoglobulin G) may come positive in many individuals, who are normal and asymptomatic. So, there is no significance of positive IgG alone (attachment removed to protect patient identity).
  • In your report IgM of HSV-herpes simplex virus and rubella are negative. So, it is normal and treatment is not required for you and for your wife.
  • I hope thyroid profile was also done and was normal.
