Delayed delivery of second twin after chorioamnionitis and abortion of first twin at 21 weeks gestation.


Delayed delivery is a relatively new term used to describe the delivery of one fetus after premature delivery of the first fetus. We describe a case where we used tocolysis and antibiotics to prolong a twin pregnancy for 35 days with excellent fetal outcome, after chorioamnionitis had caused the abortion of the first twin at 21 weeks gestation.
