Rubella Virus RNA Detection by PCR - CVS

The Rubella Virus RNA Detection by PCR - CVS test is a specialized diagnostic examination designed to detect the presence of the Rubella virus, commonly known as German Measles, in the chorionic villus sample. The test employs Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) to amplify and thereby detect the viral RNA.

  • Test NameRubella (German Measles) Virus RNA Detection by PCR - CVS
  • Sample TypeCVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling)
  • Preparations RequiredNo special instructions or preparations are necessary for this test.
  • Report Time7 days

Rubella is an infectious disease that often exhibits mild symptoms in children and adults. However, if a pregnant woman contracts the infection, it could lead to severe birth defects in the unborn child, a condition referred to as Congenital Rubella Syndrome (CRS). Therefore, detecting the presence of the Rubella virus, particularly in a chorionic villus sample, is critical to prevent potential complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

This test is pivotal in diagnosing a Rubella infection during pregnancy. It aids in the detection of a potential infection that may risk the developing fetus with CRS.

No, there is no requirement to fast before this test.

A sample of chorionic villus is collected through a procedure called Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS).

This test may be considered if you're pregnant and have been exposed to Rubella or if prenatal screening suggests a possible Rubella infection.

The test can confirm the presence of Rubella virus RNA in the chorionic villus, indicating an active infection and potential risk to the fetus.

The frequency of this test is determined by your doctor based on your medical condition, risk factors, and exposure to Rubella.

In general, the normal result would be the absence of Rubella virus RNA in the chorionic villus sample.

Please inform your healthcare provider about all the medications you're currently taking, including any allergies you have, particularly to local anesthetics.

Factors that may affect the test result include the timing of the test, stage of the infection, and sample collection method.

In the event of abnormal results, you should consult with your primary care physician, an infectious disease specialist, or a obstetrician/gynecologist.

Abnormal results typically point to an active Rubella infection that poses a risk to the developing fetus.

The sample collection involves Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS), a procedure to collect a small sample of placental tissue.

There are some risks associated with CVS, such as bleeding, infection, or harm to the fetus, but they are rare.

A positive test result may indicate a risk for the baby, as the Rubella virus can lead to CRS. However, more tests are required to confirm this risk.

PCR is a highly sensitive and specific test, but your healthcare provider will use it in combination with other diagnostic tests and clinical findings for a comprehensive diagnosis.

To sum up, the Rubella Virus RNA Detection by PCR - CVS test plays a crucial role in diagnosing a Rubella infection during pregnancy, particularly when there's a potential risk for the unborn child. It's always important to communicate with your healthcare provider for a full understanding of your test results and subsequent steps in managing your health.
