Abstract

The association between asymptomatic bacteriuria of pregnancy and the development of acute urinary tract infection and the occurrence of prematurity and perinatal deaths was studied in a group of 448 patients. The patients were predominantly indigent, multiparous Negroes, a group anticipated to have a high prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria. Based on multiple "clean-voided" urine specimens, the incidence of asymptomatic bacteriuria was 7.1 per cent. The incidence of overt urinary tract infection, prematurity, or perinatal mortality was not significantly increased in a comparison of this group with a group of patients who had essentially sterile urine throughout pregnancy.
