TORCH syndrome + mnemonic

 TORCH syndrome is caused by congenital infection by a group of infectious agents. 

The TORCH acronym initially stood for toxoplasmosis, rubella, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex. However, it also includes other organisms including syphilis, parvovirus, and varicella-zoster. Zika virus is considered the most recent member of TORCH infections.

Some people also call it TORCHeSZ infections to include syphilis and the zika virus.
