Palabras clave:

corioamnionitis, infección intraamniótica, diagnóstico y terapia antibiótica

Resumen

Objetivo: el objetivo del presente trabajo es revisar algunos aspectos del diagnóstico y tratamiento de la corioamnionitis.

Materiales y métodos: se realizó una búsqueda bibliográfica en diferentes bases de datos electrónicas para identificar literatura relevante: Pubmed, Ovid, Elsevier, Interscience, Medline, EBSCO, Scopus, SciELO (1980 al 2008) y Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group (marzo 31 del 2008) y libros de texto impresos, tratando de encontrar la mejor evidencia respecto al diagnóstico y tratamiento de la corioamnionitis.

Resultados: la corioamnionitis es un síndrome que puede afectar, tanto a la madre como al feto, y que debido a sus potenciales repercusiones en el binomio madre-feto, requiere de un diagnóstico y tratamiento oportuno.

Conclusión: la sospecha clínica de corioamnionitis es una condición catastrófica del bienestar fetal, que puede desencadenar un parto pretérmino o que potencialmente puede obligar a la inducción del parto con un feto prematuro.
