Abstract

Over a 20-year period at WHMC the annual incidence of acute antepartum pyelonephritis decreased from 4.0% to 0.8%. This decrease is correlated with the eradication of asymptomatic bacteriuria. Since urinary tract infections frequently recur, these antepartum patients must be monitored after therapy.
