The TORCH syndrome: a clinical review.


Several infections contracted in utero result in similar physical and laboratory findings during the neonatal period; the TORCH syndrome encompasses such patients. Skin lesions are a frequent finding and the dermatologist may play an important role in the early evaluation of these infants. In this review we discuss etiology, epidemiology, clinical, laboratory, radiologic, and pathologic findings, differential diagnosis, therapy, course, and prognosis of each of these congenital infections.
