Our objective was to characterize the hospital course and short-term outcomes of neonates exposed to prolonged rupture of membranes (PROM), chorioamnionitis (CH), or both PROM and CH. Outcomes were positive blood culture and/or clinical signs of infection (+BC/CSI) prompting >4 days of antibiotics. Six neonates had a positive BC, 2 (0.6%) in the CH group and 4 (2.7%) in the PROM + CH group (P = 0.05); none of the neonates exposed to PROM alone had a +BC. These results support our current approach of withholding routine antibiotic therapy in neonates exposed to PROM alone.
