Thank you for your query regarding TORCH titre. It is essential to know which type of antibody has come positive on testing. If it is the IgG antibody it suggests a natural immunity to an old infection, no medication or treatment is necessary. If the IgM antibody is positive, it suggests a recent infection. In that scenario the presence of virus in your blood and amniotic fluid will be tested for followed by treatment with anti-viral medication to reduce the chances of fetal transfer.
It would be good to review the previous Congenital anomaly scan to discern fetal affection.
There also might be a possibility of referral to feto-maternal medicine specialist if IgM titres are significant for assessment.
