OBJECTIVE: To assess genital tract sepsis-related maternal mortality in The Netherlands during 1983-1992. STUDY DESIGN: A nationwide Confidential Enquiry into the causes of maternal death. RESULTS: Genital tract sepsis-related maternal mortality during 1983-1987 was 0.11 per 100,000 live births (1/893,998) and 0.93 per 100,000 live births (9/968,990) during 1988-1992. The relative risk of dying due to sepsis in the second 5-year period as compared to the first period was 10.1 (1/72 versus 9/72 maternal deaths; 95% CI 1.3-82.3; P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Also in The Netherlands an increase of death due to genital tract sepsis has been observed since the 1980s.
