OBJECTIVE: To report the occurrence of Candida glabrata chorioamnionitis complicating an in vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancy.
DESIGN: Case report.
SETTING: University hospital.
PATIENT(S): A 30-year-old woman, primagravida, with an IVF dichorionic-diamniotic pregnancy who presented at 15 weeks with vaginal bleeding.
INTERVENTION(S): Before embryo transfer in next IVF cycle, vaginal culture from the patient revealed colonization with C. glabrata, which was treated with boric acid.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Subsequent pregnancy after eradication of fungal organisms.
RESULT(S): The patient's first pregnancy was treated with indomethacin and broad-spectrum antibiotics, but her membranes ruptured, and she delivered both twins at 16 weeks; the autopsy and pathology reports were consistent with C. glabrata chorioamnionitis. After boric acid treatment eradicated the organisms, two embryos were transferred in subsequent IVF treatment; the second pregnancy was uncomplicated, with dichorionic-diamniotic twins, delivered by cesarean section at 38 weeks.
CONCLUSION(S): Eradication of vaginal colonization with C. glabrata may prevent infection of the next IVF pregnancy.
