      Tiziana Lazzarotto is a professor of Microbiology and Clinical Microbiology at the Department of Specialised, Experimental and Diagnostic Medicine at the University of Bologna (Italy), School of Medicine. In addition, Tiziana is also Head of the Laboratory of Virology at the Operative Unit of Clinical Microbiology at St. Orsola Polyclinic, Bologna and Director of the Post-graduate school of Microbiology and Virology at the University of Bologna School of Medicine.Tiziana has made significant contributions in the study of viral infections, specifically on the pre and postnatal diagnosis of congenital CMV and Rubella infections and the management of CMV and EBV infections in solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients.Professor Lazzarotto is a member of the managing committee for the Italian Society for Clinical Microbiology (AMCLI) and a founding member of the European Congenital CMV Initiative (ECCI) – a European group founded to devise and implement concrete actions to deal with the problems linked to congenital CMV infection.


    Abstract
    DATE:  October 16, 2018
    TIME:   3:00 PM CEST, 6:00 AM PDT
     
    This webinar will provide an overview on some pathogens that can be transmitted from mother to fetus during pregnancy (prenatal infections) or delivery (perinatal infections). The most prevalent prenatal infections include: cytomegalovirus, parvovirus B19, rubella virus and Toxoplasma gondii; the perinatal infections include Herpes Simplex Virus 1-2. All these pathogens belong to the TORCH complex and can lead to severe fetal/neonatal anomalies or even loss of life.  
     
    This webinar will review the state of congenital TORCH infections, including incidence, importance of early detection, diagnosis, and disease management.
     
    Most infections in the mother are asymptomatic and/or accompanied by aspecific symptoms and/or aspecific laboratory findings, as a result clinical diagnosis is unreliable. Therefore, today, viro-microbiological laboratory techniques represent a decisive approach in the management of TORCH infections in pregnancy.
     
    Learning Objectives:
    • To review the epidemiology and burden of these infectious diseases in pregnancy and newborns
    • To illustrate the setting of the collaborative diagnostic and clinical pathway for the management of infections in pregnant women and newborns
    • To outline the advantages and limitations of the viro-microbiological diagnosis
    • To describe the measures of prevention and therapy of these infections.
