Abstract: A combination of beta-lactam and amino-glycoside antibiotics are the recommended empiric agents for the treatment of acute chorioamnionitis, given that no head-to-head trials exist (strength of recommendation [SOR]: C, based on expert opinion). Intrapartum antibiotic treatment is not superior to postpartum antibiotics for reducing neonatal sepsis and pneumonia (SOR: C, based on patient-oriented, underpowered randomized trials).
