Premature Rupture of Membranes with Concurrent Viral Infection.
Treatment of viral infections is geared toward ameliorating maternal symptoms and minimizing perinatal transmission. Multidisciplinary teams often are required to manage sequelae due to viral diseases in patients with preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). although data are scarce regarding the antepartum management of common viruses in PPROM, essential principles may be extrapolated from national guidelines and studies in gravid patients. The well-established risks of prematurity are weighed against the often unclear risks of vertical transmission.
