HIV and chorioamnionitis have mutually deleterious effects on PPROM, as HIV is implicated in the pathogenesis of chorioamnionitis, and HIV-positive patients who develop PPROM are much more likely to develop chorioamnionitis.
Pregnant women who are colonized with GBS might develop infections of the urinary tract, bacteremia, chorioamnionitis, and postpartum endometritis (23,47,48), thus increasing the risk of PTD, PPROM and perinatal transmission (49-51), resulting in neonatal sepsis and meningitis (45,52,53).
