Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is an obstetrical complication associated with high neonatal morbidity and mortality. The current management of PPROM focuses on neonatal benefit and includes the ancillary use of corticosteroids for fetal maturation. The purpose of this work was to provide a comprehensive and unbiased review of the available literature on prenatal administration of corticosteroids in conditions of PPROM, and to address the rationale and the relevant supporting evidence for this practice. We conclude that the cumulative level I evidence indicates a definite beneficial effect of corticosteroids in conditions of PPROM.
