The present study was undertaken to determine the proportion of cases of Chorioamnionitis that was caused by micro-biologic agents. Seventy-five placentas were processed to isolate aerobic and anaerobic bacteria and chlamydia. Results were correlated with the presence or absence of histologic and clinical Chorioamnionitis. Bacteria were recovered from 72% (18 of 25) of placentas with histologic Chorioamnionitis and from nine of 11 cases (82%) of clinical Chorioamnionitis, all of which had… Expand
