OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the relationship between microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity and the presence and severity of acute inflammatory lesions in the placenta. STUDY DESIGN Placental histologic and amniotic fluid microbiologic studies were performed in 92 consecutive patients who were admitted with preterm labor and intact membranes and delivered within 48 hours after amniocentesis. RESULTS The prevalence of a positive amniotic fluid culture was 38% (35 of 92… CONTINUE READING
