Abstract

A parturient suffering from preterm premature rupture of membranes at 29-weeks of gestation was hospitalized and staphylococcus was detected in her amniotic fluid. After treatment with antibiotics she delivered a healthy neonate three weeks later. ICAM-1 levels decreased by 20 fold correlating with elimination of the bacteria and prolongation of the pregnancy.
