Introduction: Chorioamnionitis is an unprecedented complication arising during labor and the intrapartum period which can lead to adverse outcomes in the mother such as sepsis and postpartum infections and the neonate such as stillbirth, neonatal sepsis, cerebral palsy, and delayed milestones with an increased NICU stay. Several studies have been done over the past years to study the pathophysiology and outcomes of chorioamnionitis. The current studies focus on the early recognition and management to prevent further complications.
Patient and methods: We want to discuss the case of a 23-year-old full-term antenatal mother who received successful multi-disciplinary treatment at a tertiary care hospital and also discuss the literature available on basic pathophysiology, diagnosis, complications, and management of chorioamnionitis.
Results: The patient had a follow-up on an OPD basis with her baby 1 month post-operatively, both stable and healthy with no complaints.
Conclusion: An early clinical diagnosis with prompt initiation of antibiotics can lead to good outcomes for the mother and the baby.
