Abstract

Rankit analysis of the incubation periods in 37 patients with preterm premature rupture of membranes and chorioamnionitis was done. The analysis revealed the existence of three distinctive groups: short (6.4 ± 2.9 hours), medium (40 ± 24.5), and long (210 ± 75 hours) incubation period. It is postulated that in the short incubation period group the preterm premature rupture of membranes is a result, rather than the cause, of the infection.
